    We are staying at Animation resort..Our original flight has been revised to arrive at 6 am instead of 12:30 pm.Since check-in isn't till 3 pm will we at least be able to check-in our luggage at resort so we don't have to lug around with us all day?

    Hi Brittany!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to help another Colorado family plan their Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I like to make the most out of every minute of our vacation, so we often arrive very early on the first day of our trip. When you arrive at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, you will be able to check your luggage with Bell Services before your room is ready. You can find Bell Services right outside of the main lobby. They will give you a claim ticket and when your room is ready, they will be able to transfer your luggage directly to your room. Our family does this every time we visit Walt Disney World Resort and it is a great way to drop off your bags so you can head straight to the theme parks!

    If you are planning on taking Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport to Disney's Art of Animation Resort, be sure to take advantage of their luggage service, which will transport your checked bags directly from Orlando International Airport to your hotel room. Simply place the yellow luggage tags on your bags at your home airport before you check them in and they will magically arrive in your hotel room. You can bypass Orlando International Airport baggage claim, which means more time at the theme parks! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
