OK, I was wondering, what time window do the resorts give you to catch the Magical Express bus for the return trip to Orlando International. I thought it was 3 hours last time we were there, but I do not remember

We are looking at taking a return flight leaving MCO at 4:20 PM in the afternoon on a Tuesday:

What time roughly will the resort, in this case Wilderness Lodge, expect us to catch the ME leaving the resort?
Will we have time for an early morning jaunt to the parks, or maybe a character breakfast?
Can we turn in the luggage earlier in the day before going to say another resort for breakfast or the park?

1) 3 hours before your flight, so around 1:15. Keep in mind that the time they assign you is the time your bus is scheduled to leave. You'll need to be waiting for the bus (completely ready to go) 15 minutes before that.

2) sure, just be back at your resort 45 to 60 minutes before your pick up time.

3) Yes, you can check your luggage with RAC (assuming you're flying a participating airline) as early as 5:30 am.
