    I just noticed that my hotel check out time is at 11am, but my flight doesn't leave until 7pm. Is it possible for me to enjoy the parks until it's time to go and still take the Magical Express back to the airport? Where can I leave my luggage in this time?

    Hi Norwing,

    If you are flying on a participating airline, before you head to the parks you can proceed to the Resort Airline Check-In desk at your resort. Your luggage will be taken to the airport for you and you'll be reunited at your home airport. I absolutely love this service.

    You can also leave your luggage with Bell Services at your resort. They will store your bags (including your carry-ons) until you return from the parks to meet the Disney's Magical Express bus. Note that your bus assignment will be approximately 3 hours prior to your flight time.

    And yes, it's entirely possible to enjoy the parks and then take Magical Express to the airport. Just allot enough time to get back to your resort and retrieve your carry-on bags before the bus for the airport arrives. The day prior to your departure, you will receive notification as to your exact airport departure time.

    Safe travels!
