Kennedy Space Center after the ship

WE have our flights booked home for late in the day after we leave the ship. While the nonstop will be nice we now have several extra hours to kill.

My question is related to out luggage and going to Kennedy Space Center.

1. Can we still send out luggage to the airport to meet out plane even though we won't be going to the airport for several hours?

2. I was planning on taking the Disney bus back to the airport from the ship. However if we go to Kennedy can I cancel the ship to the airport leg of the Disney bus?

3. Anyone have experience renting a car for the few hours and doing a one way trip with it to the airport from the Port?

Thanks in advance.

If you cancel the DCL transportation from ship to MCO, they won't be taking your bags. You'll have to manage them yourself.

No, there are certain times that your flight has to be within.

2. I was planning on taking the Disney bus back to the airport from the ship. However if we go to Kennedy can I cancel the ship to the airport leg of the Disney bus?

Yes, you can cancel the port to mco leg.

3. Anyone have experience renting a car for the few hours and doing a one way trip with it to the airport from the Port?

Yes, we did it twice. Once going to KSC. It was very easy. We just left the car with our luggage in the parking lot and spent about 5 hours touring KSC before we had to head back and drop off the car at the airport and catch our flight. We used Hertz.

Thanks in advance.

Actually, the requirement is only "no earlier than 11:30 am". I don't know that there's a "no later than". Of course, you can't use it if your flight is the next day, but as long as you are willing to hang around at the airport, you can have a midnight flight the day of disembarkment, AFAIK.
