    We're staying at POR in August. Where is the airline check-in counter located? Is there a specific location to check-in and to drop bags for return home flight? Can't find it on resort map. Stayed at AOA in past. Their map shows the check-in spot.

    Hello, William,

    How wonderful that you are returning to Walt Disney World and staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.  I hope you like it as much as my family does.  In fact, it was the resort we stayed at most frequently when our sons were growing up, so it holds so many special memories for us. 

    When the saddest day of the trip arrive, departure day, there is a Resort Check-in at the resort where you'll be able to check your luggage.  It is located right outside in the main building.  If you click on the map of the resort in the above link, zoom in on it and focus on the red roof building.  Once it's zoomed in to the maximum, look for a little icon that looks like a person at a desk. If you hover your mouse over the icon, it should show you that is it the airline check-in location. It is quite close to where cars can drop off guests in the front of the resort. 

    When you use this service if you have any further questions about Disney's Magical Express, the cast members will be able to help you.  Meanwhile, enjoy the perks of being a Disney Resort guest and Disney's Magical Express; not having to stand in line to check luggage at the airport is so incredibly helpful and such a time-saver! 

    Wishing you a magical trip. Please let us know if we can help with any additional questions. -Kara
