    Going on Magic Feb'11, HURRAH! If we use DCL transport back to MCO, can we onboard checkin our flight if we are taking Southwest? If not, would it be better to find other transport - we have a 1:30 flight out & don't want to be late for flight. Than

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  The airlines that participate in on-board check in from Port Canaveral are continually changing, and unfortunately at this time Southwest Airlines does not participate.

    That being said, I wouldn't change your airline reservation, or your ground transportation selection.  Passengers typically start debarking the ship around 7:30 a.m. and transfer service commences shortly thereafter.  The trip back to Orlando International Airport takes about 45-60 minutes, so I think you'll have plenty of time to catch your flight.

    If it makes you feel better, I usually to take the 12:00 p.m. flight home and haven't missed one yet!

    Have a great time!
