    We have a late flight out the day we leave Disney. I know we can request a later checkout when we arrive but guessing it will not be late enough. How early can we give our bags to the Magical Transportation or would we need to give them to the Bell Staff.

    Hi Angie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love to plan our flight home from Walt Disney World Resort as late in the day as possible so we can get as most magic out of our vacation as we can before our trip home! Your Walt Disney World Resort hotel will make it so easy for you to enjoy your day without having to worry about your luggage. If you are flying one of the participating airlines, you can take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In. They open at 5:00 a.m. and you can check in to your flight with them, receive your boarding passes and check your luggage. Keep in mind that you need to check your bags in at least 3 hours before your flight. So I like to check in for my flight before heading to the theme parks for the day. Once your bags have been checked in, you don't need to worry about them again until you reach your home airport! If you are flying a different airline, you can check your bags with Bell Services and then retrieve them after your theme park time so they can ride with you on Disney's Magical Express to the airport. Either way, you will be able to enjoy your day without having to worry about your luggage.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
