    We’re staying on resort and will be going to the park prior to check out before flying home. How will this work with the Disney magical express and our luggage? What the easiest way to handle this situation?

    Hi Rachel! I see you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort again very soon. How exciting!

    I love how you are maximizing your time at Walt Disney World Resort and enjoying every available moment in the theme parks!

    On the day of your departure, pack your luggage and proceed to the Resort Airline Check-In desk at your Resort hotel. You will check your luggage and receive your boarding passes. Take your carry-on items to bell services and ask them to hold them until your pick-up time with Disney's Magical Express.

    With your boarding passes in hand and your luggage checked or with bell services, you are ready to enjoy your day in the theme parks. As you are planning your last vacation day at Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to give yourself ample time to return to your Resort hotel for your motorcoach pick-up.

    The day before your departure, you will be given a Transportation Notice which will list the departure time and location for your motorcoach pick-up. Be sure to put the Transportation Notice in a safe location you can easily get to when it is time to depart. Your motorcoach driver will collect the Transportation Notice prior to boarding. On one of our vacations, we accidentally packed our Transportation Notice as we were scurrying out of our room. We then had to have the Resort hotel Concierge print a new Transportation Notice and it delayed our departure. We made it to our flight on time but I don't want you to have to experience this so keep your Transportation Notice available. Once you have boarded the motorcoach, sit back and relax as you make your way to Orlando International Airport.

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
