    We will have a rental car during our trip and won't be using DME. Can we still use resort airline check-in and check our luggage for the return trip or do we have to check in at airport since we are not using DME? Thanks in advance!

    Hi, Craig!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I learned the answer to this question earlier this year. Good news! If you aren't using Disney's Magical Express, you can still use Resort Airline Check-In. The service is available to at many of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels starting at 5:30 in the morning. Participating airlines include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines. This is one of my favorite services!

    I hope that helps you with your planning during your visit to Disney World! Let me know if I can help answer any additional questions!
