    Staying at AKL, on departure day our flight doesn't leave until 5PM. Estimating 2PM Magic Express pick-up. If we check-out, can we still swim at pool and will there be a place to change and store our luggage until we leave or is late check out avail

    Hi Sara, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question! 

    The availability of late check-out depends, among other things, on your Resort’s occupancy levels on the day you check out. If you do want to have later check-out, you can ask the Resort's Front Desk on morning of your departure from Walt Disney World Resort. 

    That being said, even if it’s not available, I’ve often had later flights out of Orlando International Airport, usually several hours after our official check-out time. You can definitely send your luggage to get held by Bell Services while you wait for your Disney’s Magical Express pickup. You can definitely visit a Theme Park or even relax and enjoy the Resort’s pool, even after you check out from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    I hope my answer helps you plans your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
