    Hi Moms and Dads! I'm planning to stay in two different hotels on my Disney trip, one outside WDW, then I'm going to transfer to a Disney hotel. Do any of you know what's the earliest time I can drop off my bags in the morning at my Disney hotel?

    Hi, Erin!  You can arrive at Walt Disney World as early as you would like.  You can check in either online or at the desk when you arrive, and bell services will hold your bags for you until your room is ready.

    If you have a cell phone with you, they can text message you with the information regarding your room number and notify you when your room is ready.  If you do not have a cell phone, they will give you a card with a phone number on it that you can call from the theme park.  They will tell you your room number when you call, and when you leave the park, you can go directly to your room.

    You will already have your Key to the World card when you check in, and it will open the door to your room when it is ready.  If you have park passes and the dining plan connected with your room reservation, they will already be on your Key to the World Card, and you are good to go as soon as you check in.

    I hope you have a great vacation!
