    We will arrive in Orlando around 11:45 and want to get to MK we need to go to our hotel (PO Riverside) to check in our carry ons with bell services and try to check in (too early?) and get transportation from our hotel to MK? What about luggage?

    Hi Anne,

    I can appreciate your desire to get your magical Walt Disney World vacation underway as soon as possible.  You have a few options regarding your luggage once you arrive in Orlando.  If you are flying in, you could make advance reservations to ride Disney's Magical Express to your resort.  If you tag your suitcases properly, Disney will grab your bags at the airport and see that they find their way to your room.  Even before your official check-in time, you can leave your carry-on bags with Bell Services at Disney's Port Orleans Resort and board a complimentary Disney bus directly to the Magic Kingdom.  This option will allow you the freedom of arriving at the Magic Kingdom without the hassle of dragging your carry-on bags with you.

    If, on the other hand, you wish to go directly to the Magic Kingdom, you could take your carry-on bags with you (assuming they are not too large) and rent a locker to store them before entering the park. 

    I think you'll find the first option the most comfortable and hassle-free.

    Wishing you a magical vacation at Walt Disney World!
