    Is Resort Airline Checkin available after check out time? Ex, our departing flight is 6pm. Will our bags be held at the resort, even after we check out, and then taken to the airport? Will we still be able to ride the bus back to the airport as well?

    Hi Michelle!  Like you, I usually try to schedule an evening flight on my departure day so I can soak up every last bit of Walt Disney World magic before it is time to return home.  Sometimes we'll spend a few hours in a Theme Park; other times we schedule a character meal for our "last hurrah".  Often we'll visit Disney Springs for some last-minute souvenir shopping.  Even time spent just relaxing at the Resort Hotel pool after a fun-filled week is a great way to spend a departure day.

    The Resort Airline Check-In desk is open from 5:00 am to 12:00 noon.  Guest flying participating airlines may bring their bags here to check them through to the airport and print boarding passes anytime within this time window.  All bags must be checked no later than three hours prior to your scheduled flight departure.  Basically, Resort Airline Check-In works much like curbside check-in at the airport - except the curb is conveniently located right at your Disney Resort Hotel!

    Disney's Magical Express airport transportation operates 24 hours a day.  If you have made a reservation for this service, you'll receive a transportation notice delivered to your room the day prior to check-out with your motorcoach departure time, which will be approximately three hours prior to your scheduled flight departure.  If you have any carry on bags, you may have them held at Bell Services at your Resort Hotel and retrieve them before boarding the motorcoach.

    Michelle, I hope I have explained how the process works.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to write us again.  We are always happy to help.

    Enjoy your vacation!
