    Best plan please? Travelling from Australia and will have hire car. We would like to get into the parks early.So what are our checkin options? Can we arrive @ hotel early leave bags, collect our bands and have bags delivered to our room? so excited 140days

    Hi Deonie,

    I can feel the excitement in your question! I love that you are planning ahead so that you know just what you will be doing when you arrive at Walt Disney World. Allow me to think through your arrival with you.

    Overall, I think that the way you laid out your plan is just right. When you arrive, drive your car to your Walt Disney World resort hotel. From there, in the lobby you will be able to check in and collect your MagicBands. You can leave your luggage with Bell Services. When you return from the theme parks that day and head into your room, simply call Bell Services and they will deliver your bags right away. My family and I have done this many times and it works wonderfully.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions as you plan your magical vacation, Deonie!
