    This is our first trip to Disney and we are flying. Our plane leave Orlando at 7pm but we check out much earlier. What can we do while we are waiting for our flight and what will be done with out bags? We don't have park tix for that day!

    Hi Brian! Thanks for the great question! There's lots to do until your flight. Your Magical Express pickup time will be approximately three hours before your flight, so expect to depart from your resort around 4 pm. When you check out, you can leave your bags with the resort Bell staff. Here are a few ideas for your last hours:

    - Enjoy your resort, spend the day at the pool, play in the arcade.
    - Visit another resort and go for lunch. You can do a character meal at the Grand Floridian's 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary, or a non-character meal: Kona Cafe (Polynesian), Grand Floridian Cafe and the Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge are a few of our favourites.
    - Get up early and visit a water park. Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are so much fun, and you can shower there, so you can easily be back in time for your ride to the airport.
    - Head to Downtown Disney. There's tons to do here. So many shops and restaurants, or you can go to DisneyQuest and enjoy five floors of interactive gaming fun. You can even soar above it all on Characters in Flight.

    Have fun Brian!!
