    Hi, Ian!

    You certainly have the plans in place for a great Disney "Surf & Turf" vacation! Since you'll be away from home for more than 2 weeks and with 7 people, you're bound to have a ton of luggage. Therefore, my suggestion of renting a few lockers at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World  (WDW) just may not do the trick this time.

    Since you'll be staying at the Grand Floridian before the cruise, you could request for your luggage to be held with bell services at that resort while you enjoy the Magic Kingdom for a few hours before you have to leave for the airport.  Alternatively, you could rent a van or a couple of cars to drive to WDW and then on to the airport. You can leave your luggage in your rental car(s). Or, you can hire a private driver to pick you up on Debarkation Day from the cruise terminal and take you to WDW. You can ask for your luggage to be kept with the driver while you enjoy the parks.

    I hope this gives you some fresh ideas, and let me know if you have other concerns. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
