Moderate resort check in

    Ann from TX Asked

    If our flight leaves at 10:15 a.m. I assume we catch ME at 7:15. Can our bags be checked the evening before with Resort Airline Check In or only morning of? What time do you suggest we report to the Resort Airline Check desk? We fly Southwest. Thank you!

    Hi Ann!

    I am a Southwest frequent flyer myself and love that we can use the Airline Check-in Program Disney offers at their resorts. It makes things so much easier when dealing with the crowds at the airport to not have to lug your bags along with the kids and everything else.

    The resort airline check-in desks open at 5am every day and they close again at noon. You would not be able to check in the bags the day before. Depending on your Magical Express pick up time you simply need to head down to the front of the resort the morning of your departure and check all bags in as well as get your boarding passes. With the assumption that your pick up would be about 7:15, I would be down and checking in no later then 6:45. If you are ready earlier you can take the bags down while everyone else finishes dressing and you can then again return to the room. Timing will be about what works best for your family that morning.

    This service is an amazing perk for the Disney resort guests. Not having to be in the long lines at the airport is amazing and you can literally head to your gate once you arrive. Safe travels to you and your family!
