    DH and I booked a Dec. land/sea vac. We are staying an extra day, but had to book the first night at POFQ (the rest of our stay is at CB), due to availability. What is the best way to get from FQ to CB using Disney transportation? What about our bags?

    You should definitely have Disney handle the baggage transfer for you. Luggage is not allowed on the internal Disney buses. (It is allowed on the Magical Express buses from the airport to WDW.) All you need to do is bring your bags down to the Bell Services desk at Port Orleans on the morning of your departure and explain that you would like your bags sent to the Caribbean Beach resort. Bell Services will tag them and arrange for the transfer. There is no charge for this, but I would certainly tip the bellperson who assists you. Generally bags will arrive at the second hotel sometime in the late afternoon. You should plan to keep anything you'll need during the day with you in a small backpack or other bag.

    As for getting yourself to the CB, you'll take a bus from Port Orleans to any of the theme parks (or Downtown Disney) and then transfer to a bus to the Caribbean Beach resort. I would plan to leave PO in the morning, then tour a park for most of the day, then return in the afternoon to CB.

    Have a wonderful visit to WDW!
