Magical Express day after checkout

Not sure this is possible or how to do this. Myself (8 guests) and a friend (5 guests) have 2 seperate reservations for AKV. He checks in 2 days after me and checks out 1 day later than me. His reservation alows 4 guests for the room and mine allows 9. We figured I could register one of his kids to our room and he could just stay with us while we are there. It doesn't look like I would have any problems with Magical Express for thier arrival but not sure how to schedule it for the departure. We leave one day before them and from my understanding you can only use Magical Express on or before checkout date. Any sugestions/tips?

One of the adults in their party (checking out the day after you) should make alternate arrangements for returning to the airport while putting all of the children on their Magical Express reservation.

Mears' Shuttle costs about $20. per person one way and they can make that reservation the morning of the day before their departure day. It is possible that the family member making the Mears reservation may be boarded on the "XX:XX PM (or AM) Magical Express departure."

One problem: Where will the fifth person stay after you (party of 8) check out and depart? They (party of 5) may need to book another room (or one/your 5 person room) for that last night and then the Magical Express problem disappears.
Last Disney trip: December 2010.
Hotel scam! Someone "from the front desk" calls your room phone or knocks on the door, usually after midnight, asking for your credit card number to complete your billing or you will be kicked out. Don't give it to him. It can wait until dawn when you stop by the front desk. This includes Disney's resorts too.

They were just going to have him sleep in their room for the one night rather than booking another room. Mear's sounds great, thanks for the info.
