    Jeff Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What are things to do (other than parks) if we check out by 11 and our flight isn't until 5:00? Would we have access to the Disney resort buses to go to Downtown Disney to eat? Would there be any issues with the free bus service to the aiirport? Thanks!

    Hi, Jeff! Your Magical Express will pick you up about three hours prior to your departure time - so, that's approximately 2:00 P.M.  You will receive the exact pick-up time the night before in your departure packet.  That will give you one last morning and early afternoon to pack in a little more Disney magic.  So, you can go eat and shop at Downtown Disney.  You are considered a Guest of Walt Disney World until midnight on your check-out day so transportation is still available to you.  The Bell Services will gladly store your luggage while you enjoy one more partial day. Whenever you are ready to check-out of the Resort (at or before 11:00 A.M.), simply explain your plans to the Bell Captain, and he/she will give you a claim tag for your luggage. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for transportation back to the Resort and to get your items retrieved from luggage services and checked in for your return trip to the airport on the Magical Express. Happy planning and have a magical vacation!
