    We will be arriving MCO a day earlier. Plan to stay at Hyatt airport. What will happen to our luggage? Do we need to take them with us for the night and bring back to the airport bus pick up the next morning? Thx!

    Welcome aboard, Diana! Staying at the Hyatt at the Orlando airport is a great way to begin your cruise. It's always smart to fly in the day before the cruise sets sail just in case you run into any flight delays.

    Don't put your DCL tags on your luggage before you leave your home airport, as you will need to claim your bags yourself once you arrive in Orlando. You can then go check in at the Hyatt with your bags. The Hyatt at the Orlando airport has a relationship with Disney Cruise Line which makes your travel even easier. If you have booked Disney Cruise Line's ground transportation between the airport and the cruise port, you will be told by the hotel when and where to have your luggage ready the next morning and Disney will take it from there, so put your tags on at that point. Then, you can simply arrive at the ground transportation check-in desk and head off to the port. 

    The motorcoaches begin leaving the airport around 9:45 or 10:00 a.m., so you can head down a bit before then if you'd like to catch one of the first rides to the port.

    I hope that information helps as you begin to plan your magical cruise with Disney, Diana! Please feel free to stop back with any other questions you might have before you set sail! I'm happy to help!
