    Hi we will be arriving around lunch time and want to hit Magic Kingdom, however check in at the Wilderness Cabin isn't until 3. Our luggage will be in the back of our truck. Are we allowed to leave our luggage at the reservation desk or what??

    Hi Jamie,

    Even though the official check-in time isn't until 3:00, you are welcome to arrive at your hotel as early in the day as you want. You can preregister, set up your room keys, and collect any park passes or Disney Dining Plan credits you may have ordered. You are also welcome to leave your luggage with the bell services desk at your hotel. They will tag your bags and hold them in a secure area for you until you return.

    And you never know, at lunchtime there some possibility that your room will be ready. With a morning arrival, I personally have had about 25% success with having my room already ready. If your room is not ready when you arrive, the hotel can send you a text or call your cell phone to let you know when it is available.

    Good luck with your planning and enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
