    I’m flying home on Southwest. Can I use the resort airline check in to get my bags to the airport and on the plane with out riding the magical express?

    Hello Jason!  Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    There are many benefits for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, but I would have to say Resort Airline Check-In Service ranks #1 in convenience!

    Resort Hotel Guests flying participating airlines, including Southwest, may check in for their flights and check their luggage through to the airport at the Resort Airline Check-In desk.  Think of it like curbside check-in at the airport, but instead the curb is right in front of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel!

    I personally have used Resort Airline Check-In Service several times to check my luggage when not using Disney's Magical Express airport transportation.  Often I will combine a visit to family in Florida with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and will have a rental car to return at the airport.  Being able to check my luggage prior to heading to the airport makes the entire departure process so much easier!  You may have your boarding pass printed at the desk, or since you are flying Southwest Airlines, can simply use a mobile boarding pass on your phone.  Be sure to have your airline confirmation number and photo I.D. when checking your luggage.

    I hope that helps!  Please feel free to visit the Moms Panel again if you have any additional questions.

    Enjoy your upcoming stay!
