    We will be arriving mid morning for our 9 night stay at the Riviera Resort. I understand check in is not until 4pm. Can we go to one of the parks while we wait for our room to be ready? What happens with our luggage during this time?

    Welcome BACK to planDisney, Kraig! It is so great to see you here asking another vacation question, and it would be my pleasure to help provide you with an answer. A dream is a wish your heart makes, and a 9-night vacation staying in the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort, sounds like a dream come true!

    You are going to LOVE staying at this resort, with the incredible European designs and style, the beautiful artwork, and the waterfront promenade, perfect for evening strolls. You will have access to my favorite new mode of transportation in Walt Disney World; the Disney Skyliner! You will be whisked away in an aerial gondola, enjoying breathtaking views as you make your way to EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I highly recommend making an advance dining reservation for Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends at Topolino’s Terrace. The food is top-notch, and you will love seeing Mickey & Friends dressed in their stylish, European-inspired outfits.

    One of the benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel or Disney Vacation Club Resort is that the magic of your vacation can begin as soon as you arrive! There is no need to wait around until check-in when you can have your luggage stored by Bell Services upon your arrival and head out to the theme parks or enjoy some time relaxing poolside until your room is ready.

    I hope you have an incredible stay at Disney’s Riviera Resort and a wonderful time in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
