    Hello panel! We arrive 5/18! We are spending last day in DD. DME will take us around 2, and we want to do our luggage check at resort. If we shop can we access our luggage to put purchases away before the shuttle takes off, or will it be ahead of us?

    Hi Brianna! Your trip will be here before you know it, how exciting!

    The Magical Express baggage check-in counter closes at 1:00pm. You'll need to be in line by noon to check your bags, and you should plan on a long line at that time (since they close for the day at 1:00, everyone with later departures will be checking their bags around the same time).

    You may decide that you want to spend as much time as possible at Downtown Disney, and not have to hang around the Resort for an hour + after checking your bags just to wait for your bus. I would recommend that you check your bags early in the morning instead. This way, you know it's dealt with and is off your mind (and you can hopefully avoid long lines). You can then plan on saving room in carry-on bags for your souvenirs that you purchase on the last day.

    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation!
