    My plane lands around 9:30 am. If we drop off our bags and have park tickets for that day can we go on to the park before checkin? Will they hold our bags?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lucinda!

    YAY!  You are going on a Walt Disney World vacation this fall!  Fall is my favorite time of year to visit as I love spending time at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

    The only day at anytime of the year that I like to wake up early is when we are traveling to the house of mouse.  I always book the first flight out of Minneapolis so that we can spend our arrival day in the parks.  

    To minimize the time between your plane and the parks, jump on the Magical Express to easily get to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  At the resort, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services until your room is ready.  If you completed your resort check-in online through My Disney Experience and left an email address and phone number on your reservation, your resort will send you an email and text to let you know when your room is ready.

    While in the parks you will receive notification that your room is ready.  You can skip bell services and the resort check-in desk and head directly to your room.  Using the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can unlock your door!  Once in your room you can call bell services to deliver your luggage while you get settled in.

    Enjoy every minute in the parks making memories this fall!  See ya real soon!  Angie
