    Leaving in 12 day! Will be at park on last day & will be using the ME luggage check-in service. I was wondering when the luggage will leave for the airport? Will we be able to pack any add'l items purchased that we don't want to/can't carry on? Tha

    Once you give your bags to the Resort Airline Check-In Service at your hotel, you will not have access to your bags until you pick them up from the carousel at your destination airport. Basically, you should consider this to be the same situation as you giving the bags to the security or check-in counter at the airport.

    In my family, we usually check our larger bags with the Resort Airline Check-In Service on the morning of our departure. But we'll give one carry-on size roller bag out of this. (This usually includes things we don't want checked, like our laptop, or things we might need on the plane, such as a book or medications.) We will bring the roller bag to the Bell Services desk at the hotel. They will tag this bag, give us a receipt, and store the bag in a secure area. Then we'll go off for a bit of last day park touring. About half an hour before our scheduled Magical Express departure, we'll claim our carry-on roller from Bell Service. At this point we can add any last-day souvenirs to the bag.

    Hope that helps.
