    A group of us are going down to Disney in June. We are staying at the Animal Kingdom Jambo House, and check in at 4pm. Our flights lands in Florida at 10 am. Are we allowed to check-in that early, and if not what about our luggage?

    Hi Kirsten:

    What a treat to stay at Animal Kingdom Jambo House. My family stayed there in January and had a wonderful time. There is a small chance your room may be ready if you arrive early. If it's ready, you'll be able to check-in early. Most likely, however, you'll need to wait a bit until your room is ready. If that's the case, don't worry about your luggage. If you are using Disney's Magical Express to transport your luggage, your bags will be delivered to your hotel room. If you have luggage or bags with you, you can check your bags with bell services at the hotel and start enjoying the day.

    You may want to pack a small bag you can carry with you that has a change of clothes suitable for the warmer weather in Florida. Either head straight to the parks to have some fun or start taking advantage of the services at the resort. For example, you can grab a quick service lunch at The Mara or shop at Zawadi Marketplace. Children in your party may want to play in Pumbaa's Fun & Games Arcade or in the Hakuna Matata Playground. Or you can relax by the lobby's fireplace.

    Enjoy your vacation.
