    If check in isn’t until 3pm and we get there mid morning can we use the pool and have our bags delivered to our rooms at check in?

    Welcome to planDisney, Caitlin! A pool day at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel sounds like the perfect way to splash into the fun of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I'm headed to the Most Magical Place on Earth tomorrow and plan to be splashing around at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort as soon as we arrive!

    Caitlin, you'll be happy to know that Bell Services at your Disney Resort hotel will be happy to handle storing and delivering your bags if you arrive before your room is ready, so you can dive right into the fun without worry! Just visit the Bell Services stand at your hotel, where they will collect and tag your bags. You can either come back and collect them yourself, or request them to be delivered to your room later in the day. Sometimes there may be a wait for the bags if you choose to have them delivered, so I'd suggest packing a day bag to keep with you so you will have a change of clothes and any other important items you might need while you are without your luggage. You'll also find plenty of complimentary towels in the pool area of your resort, so you won't need to worry about those!

    Caitlin, one quick bonus tip I'll offer is to be sure and complete the Online Check-In in the My Disney Experience mobile app and let them know your anticipated arrival time. While there is no guarantee, you can request your room to be ready early when you complete this process, and with the Direct-to-Room Service, you will receive a text message and app notification as soon as your room is ready!

    I hope this helps, and I hope you enjoy your magical vacation! If you have any other planning questions before you arrive, come back to planDisney and let us know! We're always ready to dive into the fun with you!
