    Hi! Have ? about resort airline check in. I'm flying southwest & must check in online 24 hrs in advance to get a seat. Can I still use resort airline check in to check bag/get boarding passes morning of flight?I have heard that this is a problem for s

    Hi Diane!   Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we are so glad you stopped by again with another question.   My family just returned recently from a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World, and we flew Southwest Airlines.   I am happy to share my experience using the Resort Airline Check-In service. 

    My family does like to get our boarding number 24 hours in advance by using the online check- in system that Southwest Airlines does provide.   You can even check-in using the app for your smart phone in case you are busy enjoying all the Disney magic. I was waiting in line for Spaceship Earth when I checked in for my last flight.    Diane, you will be able to check-in your baggage, and get your boarding passes the day of your flight at the Resort Airline Check-In desk at your Disney Resort hotel, which is open from 5:00 am to 1:00 pm daily.   You must check in no later than 3 hours prior to your flight departure time.  If your flight is before 8:00 am you will be required to check-in at the airport.   My family has utilized this service many times and never had a problem.  I will note that at times special circumstances will require some guests to check-in with their airline carrier at the Orlando International Airport. 

    I hope this has answered your question Diane!   If you need my assistance in the future, just ask.  I love to help fellow Disney loving families plan unforgettable adventures. 

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
