    Can you tell me how departure day works for us? Our flight isn’t until 9 PM. Since checkout is at 11, can we use the airport check-in at the Contemporary front desk, leave carry-on bags and checked luggage there and return later to board the Magical Exp?

    Hi Paula,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate it when guests like you return with new questions about your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. And it looks like your next vacation is coming up soon! I think you will absolutely love Disney's Contemporary Resort. You are going to be immersed in the magic!

    When I'm planning a Walt Disney World Resort visit, I like to arrive early and leave later in the day. On your departure day, if you are flying with a participating airline, you can visit the Resort Airline Check-In desk between 5 A.M. and 12 P.M. to check your luggage. When you check out of the resort, you can leave your carry-on bags with Bell Services while you enjoy your last day. Disney's Magical Express will typically pick you up around 3 hours before your flight departure time. You will want to give yourself a little extra time when you return to the resort just in case Bell Services is busy. Before you know it you will be on your way back to the airport. No one wants their vacation to be over but at least the combination of Resort Airline Check-in and Disney's Magical Express make departure day a little easier. 

    Paula, thank you for visiting us with another great question. I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
