I am planning a spring break cruise. We will hit WDW before the cruise. I am looking at a flight home after the cruise, and the only sort of reasonable one price-wise is at 8pm. So we’d have like 12 hours to kill. The airline won’t take our luggage that early for checkin.
If we wanted to go to Animal Kingdom Lodge, get lunch, maybe watch animals and wander around the resort a bit, would we be able to check our luggage with the bag check outside the hotel entrance?
When we’ve arrived on an early flight and headed straight to the parks, I’ve bag checked my carryons before grabbing a bus, and I think they just gave me a ticket to retrieve my bags. I’m not trying to scam the system, I’m just wondering if I can check my luggage for a few hours before heading to the airport (I know I can’t use DME). We’ll be at AKL before the cruise, but if we do this flight we won’t need a hotel after the cruise.
Do you think the bag check option would work?
