    My family will be flying in before we can check into the resort. i know Disney will take care of our checked bags, but what do we do with our carry on bags? will we have to tote them around all day until it is time to check into our room?


    No, you don't have to lug them all around all day long!

    What we do when we arrive is consolidate all the items that we WANT to take with us into the park into one backpack, and then check the remaining 3 carry-ons at the resort front desk. They will hold them for us, nice and safe, for when we return to the resort later that day. 

    While our packed luggage that came via Magical Express will go straight to our room, with no effort on our part, we do still have to gather our carry-on bags that we stored at the front desk. I also recommend a $1-2 per bag tip to the Disney Cast Members for taking such good care of your personal belongings. Well worth it for the ease of not having to either carry them around, or worry about the contents!

    Have a magical vacation!
