    My question is what time in the morning does the bell staff open to check in luggage for return flights home? I know we have to be at ME three hours before flights . We need to be there at 5:45 am. Thank you all so much.

    Hello Pamela!

    Welcome back!  It's always a pleasure to help out a returning Guest of the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I hope you are having a blast making your Walt Disney World Resort vacation plans.

    Resort Airline Check-In Service makes your departure back to reality so simple.  You can check your bags and collect your boarding passes right at your Disney Resort Hotel.   I have used it almost every time I have vacationed and it saves me a lot of time at the airport.   Currently only certain airlines participate, so I encourage you to check the website often to see if changes to the list have been made.    Resort Airline Check-In Service opens at 5 a.m and closes at 12:00 noon.   Guests must check-in no later than 3 hours before their scheduled flight departure.   If your flight is departs before 8 a.m. you would need to take your bags to the airport with you and check in once you arrive at Orlando International Airport.

    I hope this has answered your question, Pamela.   Please let me or any of my fellow panelists know if you have any other questions or concerns about your upcoming adventure.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
