    We arrive earlier than our check time of 3pm on our 1st day. Do we utilize Bell services to check our luggage? And is there a way to do an earlier check in? Thanks!

    Dear Shaun,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    My family frequently arrives much earlier than 3pm as well, and Cast Members at Bell Services are always extremely friendly and accommodating about assisting with your luggage. They will be able to take your luggage and then whisk it to your room as soon as it is ready! Sometimes it will be ready well before your 3pm time and sometimes it may be right before 3pm, so you might as well get out and enjoy your time in the parks knowing that your belongings will be well cared for!

    If you would like an earlier check-in, be sure to indicate that on your online check-in and then again when you arrive at the hotel. They will do everything they can to assist you if there is availability.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
