    We are flying into Orlando, landing at 9am. We are taking Magical Express to Disney. Since we are arriving at the resort prior to check in time, what can we do with our carry on bags so we can go on to the park? I know our checked bags will go to our room

    Hello Chad!

    When you arrive at your resort, you'll be able to check-in right away.  If your room isn't ready (they typically aren't ready until the official check-in time of 3pm), you can simply leave your carry on bags with Bell Services.  They will store your bags for you so you can jump right into enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World.  You can pick the bags up on your way to your room later that afternoon. 

    I suggest packing a change of clothes and any other items you may need prior to 3-4pm, since you won't have access to your checked baggage in the morning/afternoon.  We usually pack our swimsuits in our carry on so we can enjoy the resort pools on our first day.  There are locker rooms available at the pool areas for changing before/after your swim.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions, Chad.
