    Susan from MD Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We are arriving 4/30 around 9:30am. Our luggage will arrive via Magical Express but we can't check-in until 3pm. Will there be somewhere that we can leave our things/change, etc., so we can visit the parks? We are staying at the Caribbean.

    Hi Susan!  Thanks for the question!

    When you arrive at Caribbean Beach Resort, you will actually be able to go ahead and check in, even though your room probably will not yet be available! After checking in, you will receive your room key which will also serve as your tickets, and dining plan (if purchased) so you can begin enjoying your benefits upon arrival.  

    After you have checked in, simply go to the Bell Services Desk.  They will happily store your luggage / bags and give you claim tags which you will bring back to them when you are ready to retrieve your items.

    As far as changing, there are restrooms located in the lobby of Caribbean Beach which will probably be the best bet for a quick change before hitting the parks!

    If by some chance, your room is ready when you arrive, you will be able to go there immediately.  If not, just go ahead and change, leave your bags at Bell Services and head over to the parks to begin enjoying the magic!  The hotel will call when your room is ready and Magical Express will have delivered your bags to your room for you!

    Hope you have the most magical Walt Disney World vacation EVER!
