    I'm from UK, a small question about the resort airline check in. On the return, we have a layover in NYC, therefore our first flight is domestic. Does this mean we can use the check in service even though our second flight is to the UK?

    Hello Gemma! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Since an Endlessly Magical Walt Disney World Resort Vacation has to end eventually, it's nice to have a tool like the Resort Airline Check-In Service to make your last day as smooth as possible.

    When using the Resort Airline Check-In Service with Walt Disney World Resort, you can check your bags and print your boarding tickets for any domestic flight with any of the participating airlines.  As your first flight before your layover is a domestic flight within the United States, you should be able to check your baggage and receive your boarding passes using the Resort Airline Check-In Service.

    Most likely, you'll have to obtain your luggage from your layover destination and check in your baggage for your preceding flight. However, if your international flight is with the same airline as your International flight, they may handle the transfer of baggage at your layover destination. Be sure to speak with a Cast Member when using the Resort Airline Check-in Service as to the steps required for your baggage at your layover destination.

    The most important element of using the Resort Airline Check-In Service is that you are checking your baggage for a domestic flight with a participating airline.

    Be sure to take advantage of the Online Resort Check-In Service up to 60 days in advance of your vacation to ensure that you start your Walt Disney World Resort vacation as magically as it ends.

    Have a magical vacation!
