    For departure of flight is later than hotel checkout. Do i have to carry luggage around from resort checkout till magic express pick up (4 hours before flight?) And if so can i go to the hotel earlier?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Oh, the dreaded Disney's Magical Express return ride. I know all our Walt Disney World Resort vacations have to end some time, but it's always a sad return back to the Orlando International Airport. 

    The good news is that no, you don't have to carry your luggage around until your scheduled Disney's Magical Express pick-up time. If you aren't utilizing the Resort Airline Check-In Service, you can still check your luggage to be held with Bell Services at your Resort. Then, at least 15-minutes prior to your scheduled Disney's Magical Express pick-up time, return to Bell Services for your luggage and take it to the Disney's Magical Express Bus Stop with you to board the bus. The driver will safely store it in the cargo section of the bus and return it to you at the airport. We've spent several hours in a park, exploring Disney Springs, or even just hanging around our Resort without having to lug around our bags and belongings. 

    Have a wonderful vacation, Jennifer! 

    Magical Wishes,
