    My bell service representative mentioned that my bags will arrive at my next resort in between 1 and 7 PM. Does that mean I need to be there somewhere between 1 and 7 PM as well, or am I able to check in later than 7 PM to check-in?

    Hi Konnor! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! It sounds like you may have already arrived for your Walt Disney World vacation or will be arriving very soon! Regardless, I hope you are excited about all of the magical experiences that await.  I'm happy you have decided to stay in Disney Resorts hotels. There is nothing quite like being immersed in the magic from the start of your trip!

    I have great news for you, Konnor! When Bell Services transfers your luggage from one Disney Resorts hotel to the next, you do not need to be present to receive the luggage. Bell Services will hold onto your belongings until you arrive at your next resort later that day. In fact, this is a great day to enjoy at the parks since you will most likely not have a room available for a large portion of the day. Once you check out of your first resort, you won't be able to check in to the next until later that afternoon. When you return later that evening, your room will be guaranteed to be ready and you can head straight there. 

    If you utilize the Direct-to-Room Service and check in to your resort using the My Disney Experience App, you will be notified on your device when your new room is ready. The room number will be provided which will allow you to bypass the front desk and head directly there. Once there, you can call Bell Services to have them bring your luggage to your room.

    One of the best perks to staying onsite is the complimentary Disney Transportation that is available to you. No matter where you stay, you'll either have a bus, monorail, boat, or Disney Skyliner to take you to the theme park of your choice each day. Part of the fun for my family is just getting from place to place!

    Konnor, I hope you have an amazing time! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    Have a magical day!
