    Our plane leaves at 8am Jan 3rd. I saw that the perks of staying in a WDW hotel is a bus to the airport, being able to check our bags, and being able to get our tickets at the resort. How does this work? Is our flight to early for us to be eligible 4 this?

    Hi Sally! Disney offers the Magical Express service to its resort guests to and from the Orlando International Airport. You can check your luggage from 5am -1pm each day at your resort location. There will be a desk manned from those hours and you will receive your luggage tag receipts as well as boarding passes if your airline participates. Now days most airlines do but make sure ahead of time. You are requested to have your luggage down and checked three hours ahead of your flight so you would want to be first in line at 5am. That is an early time but it does prevent you from the LONG lines at the airline counters once you arrive at the airport. I also suggest you not wait long after you check your bags to get to the airport. Mornings can be quite busy and the security lines can get very long at certain times of the year.

    If you have any further questions you can simply ask your resort front desk or concierge for location of the check-in desk etc.
