    I'm staying at the Animal Kingdom lodge and will be using magical express to get to MCO. If I have Breakfast at Chef Mickeys on my last day, can I take the magical express from there? Can I still check my bags for the flight at AKL before leaving?

    Hello, Joseph!

    Having breakfast at Chef Mickey's on your departure day sounds like a terrific plan! We love ending our vacation with a character dining experience! 

    Your Disney's Magical Express reservation is linked to your Disney Resort hotel reservation; therefore, you must return to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to board the motorcoach for your ride to Orlando International Airport (MCO). You will receive a Transportation Notice the day before check-out that will tell you the pickup time and location at your Disney Resort hotel for your motorcoach. Expect your pickup time to be approximately 3 hours before domestic flights and 4 hours prior for international flights. Be sure to keep your Transportation Notice with your carry-on items, as you must present it before boarding the Magical Express.

    If you are flying with a participating airline, you can utilize the complimentary Resort Airline Check-in Service. You will be able to check- in for your flight, get your boarding passes and check your luggage right at the Airline Check-In desk at your resort before you head to Chef Mickey's. You can store any carry-on items with Bell Services until you are ready to board Magical Express. 

    After your breakfast, simply take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom and catch a bus back to your resort or you can take a taxi, which may save you some time. You can then pick up any items from Bell Services and head directly to the pickup point at Animal Kingdom Lodge. 

    I hope this helps with your planning, and you enjoy your breakfast at Chef Mickey's! Please visit us again should other questions arise as you plan your magical vacation.
