    On our departure day we have to be out by 11am but our flight to the uk is at 5:35pm, is the a left luggage at the hotel (we are at Animal Kingdom Lodge). First timers any tips welcome (lots of dinng booked can't do FP yet) Thanks

    Greetings, Vanessa! I am so happy to hear about your first trip to Walt Disney World Resort. There is so much to see and do, I’m sure you’ll be planning your return even before you leave!

    My favorite thing to do is leave property late, but when you need to leave your hotel room by 11am, it does pose an issue with bags! I like to come down to the bellhop stand early, around 9 or 10am, with packed bags in hand. Many Resorts, Animal Kingdom Lodge included, offer Resort Airline Check-In Service, which includes the ability to check your luggage right at the stand and receive your airline boarding pass. Resort Airline Check-In Service is available for the following airlines, departing from MCO Orlando International Airport: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines (U.S. Domestic Flights Only), JetBlue, Southwest and United. If you aren't flying these airlines, or are going Delta International, you can ask the Bell Hops to stow your luggage while you have some fun!

    After I check my luggage, I take my carry-on with me (usually a backpack) to enjoy Disney Springs or Resort activities. I remember to be back at my Disney's Magical Express Bus Stand at least 30 minutes before my motor coach departs. Those buses are very serious about leaving on time, and they will absolutely leave without you!

    You can book your Disney’s Magical Express transport from and back to the airport by using this form. It’s a comfortable way to arrive and relaxing way to journey back home. Please let me know what other tips I might share to make your first visit a trip to remember! ~ Lindsey P
