    We will be going to a park the day we fly out. Will guest services be able to keep our carry on bag while we go the parks?

    Hi there, Angela! It sounds like you've got a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth coming up! While arrival day is always exciting, the thought of saying goodbye to Mickey at the end of your vacation can be a little sad. Let's talk about some ways to make your last day extra fun!

    I think going to the Parks before heading out on Disney's Magical Express (or should we say, "Tragical Express") is a terrific idea. One thing I'd recommend taking advantage of is the Resort Airline Check-In. As long as you are flying home on one of the participating airlines, you can check-in for your return flight, collect your boarding pass, and even check your bags at the Airline Check-In desk. Easy peasy! This complimentary service is available to all Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests daily from 5:00 AM to 12:00 noon; just make sure you do this no later than three hours before your scheduled flight departure. Also, keep in mind that some airlines charge a baggage fee, so you may want to check the company's website to see if this applies to your flight.

    Since you are also planning on having carry-on luggage, you can certainly leave your bags with your resort's Bell Services team while you hit the Parks. Here's a Moms Panel tip: Leave a little extra room in your carry-on for those last-minute souven-EAR purchases! I learned this the hard way a few yEARs ago, and I was frantically repacking my bag on the Magical Express to make everything fit- it was a tight squeeze! I also suggest indulging in a Dole Whip (or your favorite Disney treat), and soaking up that Florida sunshine!

    Have a great time, Angela, and feel free to stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!
