    We'll be arriving around 8a and thinking of going to a park. Will the resort hold our carry on bags for us? I'm assuming our room won't be ready yet.

    Hi Carla! Many guests arrive early on the first day of their reservation. The resorts understand that families don't want to waste a moment of time to get into the parks and start their magical vacations. Every resort will hold your luggage whether you drive or fly and take the Magical Express. Make sure you have a small bag for the things you might need during the day such as swimsuits and keep valuables with you as well. Check in with the resort as soon as you arrive and they will ask for a cell phone number so they can text you the room assigned to you as soon as it is ready. General rule of thumb is to understand that rooms are ready in the resorts by 3pm and by 4pm in the DVC properties. They will do their best to get a room ready early and sometimes you can take a room that is ready but it might not be where or the kind you requested so it's a decision you can make that day.

    When you return from the park simply call down to the Bell Service desk and request they deliver your bags to your room. It might take a few minutes depending on how busy they are. It is a nice gesture to remember them with a small gratuity as well.
