There is nothing fun about vacation coming to an end, especially a Walt Disney World vacation. If you stay on property at a Walt Disney World Resort, you may be able to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In. This process makes saying good-bye a little less annoying.
What is Resort Airline Check-In?
Resort Airline Check-In is a complimentary service that allows you the ability to check-in for your departure, receive your boarding pass, and check your bags at your resort. This means when you get to the airport all you need to do is go through security.
What do you need for Resort Airline Check-In?
You will need a government issued identification or passport for each person traveling in your party.
You need to check-in at least 3 hours prior to your flight. Keep in mind if your flight is delayed, the resort check-in time is not pushed back. If your flight was scheduled to leave at 10 am, you must check-in by 7 am, even if the flight is delayed until 12 pm.
If you would get charged a fee for checked bags, you would also pay this at Resort Check-In.
Who can use Resort Airline Check-In?
Resort Airline Check-In is open from 5 am – 12 pm every day. If you have a 6 am flight, you will not be eligible for Resort Airline Check-In. Also if you have a later flight, say 8 pm, you need to make sure you check in before they close for the day at 12 pm.
