    Hi, we will be arriving in mid Jan 2016. Check in time isn't until 3pm but our flight will be getting in at 9am. We will be taking the DME to our resort. If we want to go to the parks before check in time, what happens with our luggage and carry on

    Hi Sharon,

    Your vacation is just around the corner, you must be so excited!  You will be happy to know that your vacation can begin as soon as Disney's Magical Express drops you off at your Resort hotel.  You may check-in at the front desk even if your room will not be ready until after 3:00 PM.  If your luggage is being transported by Disney's Magical Express then it will be placed in your room after it becomes available, just like magic!  However if you are bringing a carryon piece of luggage you may check it in with Bell Services when you arrive to your Resort hotel and they will hold it for you while you visit the parks.  When you later return to your Resort hotel simply stop by Bell Services again and pick up the items you checked with them.   Alternatively you may go to your room and call Bell Services to request for your items to be delivered.  Just note that someone must be present in the room to receive the items from Bell Services when you call for delivery.  This is unlike Disney's Magical Express which will place the luggage you checked at the airport (and affixed the yellow Disney's Magical Express tags) in your room even if you are not present.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your vacation planning question, please come back and visit us again should you have any further questions.
