    How long does it take to check in at the resorts airline check in desk? Is 30 minutes enough time? Our flight is at 8:50am, and I know the Magical Express bus is three hours prior to the flight, so I want to allow enough time. Thank you for your help.

    Hiya Thomas!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting us!  

    On average, my experience with Resort Airline Check-In Service has always been very efficient!  Do make sure you have your government-issued I.D. or passport ready as you head to check your bags.  I would give at least 30 minutes for this process for an early morning flight, and might even expect that there might be a slight wait as many guests will be preparing for those early morning flights.  I'd be inclined to try to be at the Resort Airline Check-In desk by 5 AM to ensure that I've allowed enough time for the process prior to Disney's Magical Express transportation back to the airport. 

    Have a magical vacation and thanks again for stopping by!
