    Our flight got pushed back to 5pm. Thinking of checking out of CSR around 11 and heading to DD for lunch at Planet Hollywood at 11:45, then back to CSR to catch the ME to the airport. How would this work with our luggage? Would we have enough time?

    Hi Carrie! How lucky that the airline is giving you a little extra time at Walt Disney World! I love having late flights home so I can squeeze in one more day of fun!

    Disney's Magical Express airport transportation service generally picks you up at your resort three hours before your flight, so your pick-up time will likely be 2 p.m. When you check out of your resort that morning, if you're flying on an airline that participates in the Resort Airline Check-In Service, you can check in for your flight and check your baggage right at the resort so you won't have to deal with your suitcases again until you get home. If you have carry-on bags that you don't want to take to lunch at Downtown Disney, you can give them to Bell Services at your resort to hold for you until your Magical Express pick-up time. 

    The bus ride from Coronado Springs to Downtown Disney takes about 20 minutes, but you may have to wait 15 minutes for a bus to arrive. Since you don't want to miss your Magical Express, I'd plan to be at the Downtown Disney bus stop an hour before your pick-up time. If you leave Coronado Springs a little earlier in the morning, you'll have a few hours for a nice lunch and some last-minute shopping.
