    We are traveling Air Tran with ME. You can do boarding passes 24hrs in advance to get a good seat. On the way home I heard ME hands out boarding passes that am. That does not give me a good chance at a seat. Can I get a pass 24 hrs early and still do ME?

    When I flew Southwest to Orlando I needed to check in 24 hours prior in order to get a boarding pass that would provide us with a better selection of seats.

    I went to the Front Desk at Coronado Springs Resort and they took care of checking me in AND printing my boarding pass. (I have also done this at the Beach Club as well.) You can definitely get your boarding pass taken care of prior to using Magical Express on your departure morning. Get your boarding pass secured as soon as you can when flying on any airline that does not provide reserved seating at the time of booking.

    You will then be able to use your Resort Airline Check In desk (to check in your luggage at your resort rather than the airport) and Magical Express for transportation to the airport.

    Your airline boarding pass/luggage check in and Magical Express transportation are independent of each other.
