    Our flight leaves at 9:15AM to get us home. What time will we have to be leaving the resort? Will Disney Transportation be going that early to the airport? Can we still use check-in at the hotel calling the airport the night before to pay for bag fees?

    Hi, Christa! Your Magical Express will pick you up about three hours prior to your departure time - so, that's approximately 6:15 A.M.  You will receive the exact pick-up time the day before in your departure packet. The Magical Express operates for Guests with a departure time at or after 8:00 A.M.  If your flight is on one of the participating airlines (at last check: AirTran, Alaska, American, Continental, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, United, and U.S. Airways), you will be able to check your luggage and receive your boarding passes at your Walt Disney World Resort.  Before that, you will contact Baggage Airline Guest Services at 407-284-1231 to pay applicable baggage fees.  This must be done between 5:00 A.M. and 11:00 P.M.  This will also be detailed in your Magical Express information you receive the day before check-out.  Happy planning and have a magical vacation!
