    On our last day at WDW our flight does not leave until just after 5pm. We would like to do 1/2 day at our favoirte park. Can you please explain how I could do this with my lugguge and how I make sure i get to the airport on time.

    Hi, Stephanie!   You sound like my family.   We like to get in every last minute of the Disney Magic before catching our flight home!

    If you are using Disney's Magical Express, after checking out of your resort, ask for the luggage room.   Here, you can safely store your luggage for the day.    Then you will be free to enjoy your half-day of Disney!    You will have received a note in your room with a time for your transfer to the airport (usually 3 hours prior to your flight.)  Plan to be back at your resort allowing enough time to retrieve your luggage, and get to the bus stop for your motor coach ride back to the airport.    When the motor coach arrives, load up your luggage and you are off!  

    If you have a rental car, just load your luggage in your car after checking out and head to the park of choice.  Then, around 2:00 p.m. plan to be in your car heading to the airport.  

    Enjoy your stay at WDW!
