    Hi Jennifer!

    I completely understand, after a late flight the last thing you want to do is to wait for your luggage to arrive. At Orlando International there are luggage carts available, but they do cost a small fee.  Smart Carte has luggage carts located near baggage claims and just outside of the airport, there is a $5 fee which you can pay be credit card at the cart dispenser.  Although they may be harder to find later in the evening, you could always go with the option of using a porter.  This option is a great convenience although a little more expensive than just renting a Smart Carte.

    Another good suggestion, one that I would use, is to let Disney's Magical Express handle your luggage. Just Pack what you will need for one night in your carry on bags plus your stroller (which shouldn't count toward your bag limit).  Upon checking into your Disney resort, let the front desk know that you would like your luggage held once it arrives.  This way you can get a good nights sleep and have your luggage brought up the next morning.  If you it looks like you may still be awake later in the evening, you can always check to see if you luggage has indeed arrived.  

    I hope this helps and please let us know if you have anymore questions!

    Best Wishes!
