    We are flying in and renting a car, our vacation is 7 nights. Do you think we can get by with our backpacks and one carry-on each? Or is it worth waiting for baggage claim to bring a checked bag? Two adults only staying offsite.

    Hello, Brandie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Thank you so much for your question!!

    Based on the information from your question, my recommendation would be to wait at baggage claim for your checked bags.  The first reason is that there are not any kids with you on your vacation, so it will be very easy for you to take the extra time to retrieve your checked bags. Second, I would want to bring seven changes of clothes and not worry about doing laundry on my vacation. (Who wants to spend their vacation time doing laundry?!) Third, I totally believe that taking an extra 30 minutes at baggage claim will definitely give you peace of mind knowing you had everything you need for your MAGICAL Walt Disney World Vacation!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
