    Last day on Sep 29 ADR at CM at 10AM staying at POR. Flight at 3PM. Can we leave our luggage at POR for pick up at POR? If so, what route should we take to CM and back? Or should we take our luggage with us and take Magic Express to airport from there?

    Hello Ane!

    Disney's Magical Express is designed to take you from the airport to your Disney Resort and to take you back to the airport from your Disney Resort.  My suggestion would be to go ahead and check your bags at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside Resort Airline Check-in Desk.  Here are the following Airlines that allow you to check your bags at the Disney Resorts:
  • AirTran Airways
  • Alaska Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Delta Air Lines
  • JetBlue Airways
  • Southwest Airlines
  • United Airlines
  • US Airways
  • Once you check your bags there, you will not see your bags until you arrive at the airport!  This Airline Check-in desk is just like curbside check-in at the airport.  WOO HOO!

    I would then check your carry-on bags at the Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside Resort Bell Service Desk.  They will hold your bags until you arrive back at the resort.

    To travel to Chef Mickey's from Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside, take the bus to Magic Kingdom.  You can then just walk to Disney's Contemporary Resort or take the Monorail over to the resort.  You will just reverse the process to get back in time to catch your Disney's Magical Express bus to the airport.

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
