    Hi! I understand I will receive a notification of my DME pick up time the day before departure. But for Resort Airline Check-In Service - how early should I bring down my bags? 24 hours before departure? Anytime the day before? Or day of? Thank you!

    Hello, Tianna,

    To say how much I love Disney's Magical Express Resort Airline Check-In Service is an understatement! Having the opportunity to check our luggage without long lines and the hassles of the airport is truly priceless.

    If you are flying on Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, or US Airways, you are eligible for the Resort Airline Check-In Service at your Disney Resort. The Resort Airline Check-In Desk is open daily from 5:00 AM to 11:00 AM (some resorts may be open longer; the individual resort hours will be shared with you when you receive your confirmation letter the day before you depart).  If your flight departs before 8:00 AM, you will need to check in at the airport. 
    If you have any bags that you would like to have for carry-on bags, those can be checked at Bell Services if you aren't leaving right away.

    Wishing you a magical trip.  If you have any further questions, please let us know!  -Kara
