When can you check out your bags?

Unread post by royhan » July 22nd, 2016, 7:55 am

Guests departing on certain airlines can check in to the airline at the resort and collect their boarding passes at the same time. Does anyone know what time this facility opens in the morning?

Thank you Andre.
In your link it states, Guests who fly with specific participating airlines can also use the Resort Airline Check-In service (which is automatically set up for you if you arrive with Disney’s Magical Express).
We won't be arriving with Disney Magical Express as we will be coming up from Tampa. We will be travelling on the DME to MCO for our return journey to the UK. It is an American Airlines flight but it will not be a direct flight as we change at Philadelphia. Do you know if can still check in our bags early at the resort?

So long as it's a supported airline, you should be able to use the resort checkin and bag drop service. You don't even need to be using Magical Express at all in fact.

If you are flying internationally, there is a fairly strong possibility that you'll end up needing to use the airport for your bags anyway, but that's up to the TSA not Disney to decide (and there is no rhyme or reason to who can and who can't).
