    Thanks so much Jen! With the resort check in for air travel what needs to be done? The air carrier we are using is one of the participating airlines & they offer online check in 24 hours prior to flight departure time. Do we go ahead &do the online

    Hi Amanda!

    I'm so thrilled you found my advice helpful when planning your upcoming adventure.   Yes, you can still check-in for your flight using your airlines website 24 hours before departure.   On the morning of your departure you can bring your luggage to the Resort Airline Check-In desk which is usually located near the Bell Service desk at the entrance of each Disney Resort hotel. The location for your specific Resort will be listed on your Disney's Magical Express Transportation Notice you will receive in your Guest room the day before you depart.   The Resort Airline Check-In desk is open from 5:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. daily.  You must check in your luggage no later than 3 hours prior to your flight departure or before the desk closes for the day, whichever is sooner.   The Cast Members at the desk will tag your luggage and ship it directly to Orlando International Airport for you, and also print your boarding passes.  

    Amanda if your airline charges baggage fees you can pay them directly online with your airline if they offer that service, or by calling Baggage Airline Guest Services at (407)284-1231 between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. Please do this before checking in your luggage with Resort Airline Check-In.  Once you check in your luggage you will be all set to go explore for the remainder of the day, and can head directly to the departure gate once you arrive at Orlando International Airport.  Isn't that fantastic?  If you do have carry-on bags you can store them with Bell Services until you are ready to board Disney's Magical Express.  

    Enjoy your trip and please visit me again with any other questions you might have.  I love to lend a helping hand whenever I have the chance.

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
