    We are staying at the Kidani Villas at the end of September. We are renting a car, not using the Magical Express. On the day we leave, may we check our luggage so we don't have to transport it to the airport? Thanks!

    Hi, Susan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are going to love staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village! It's a stunning resort with a quiet, relaxing ambiance that my family truly appreciates after a busy day touring the parks. There are many wonderful animal and cultural programs offered throughout the day and into the evening hours at both Kidani Village and the adjacent Jambo House. Sanaa restaurant at Kidani Village is a unique dining experience where you can enjoy African/Indian fusion cuisine and view the amazing animals on the savanna thanks to huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Samawati Springs Pool at Kidani features a 128-foot water slide and an interactive water play area for kids called Uwanja ("playground" in Swahili) Camp. 

    We frequently stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge as it is one of our favorite resorts. We always rent a car and on the morning of the last day of our stay we use the super convenient Resort Airline Check-In Service. We check our bags and collect our boarding passes at the Airline Check-In desk -- we are then free to spend the rest of our departure day enjoying our resort or spending a few final hours in one of the theme parks. With the complimentary Resort Airline Check-In Service, we don't have to worry about our bags since we know they will be sent to the airport and loaded onto our aircraft. Please be aware that guests are required to check in no later than 3 hours prior to their scheduled flight departure. Follow the link above for further details including the participating airlines and resort hotels. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation! Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any other questions as you continue planning your trip.
