    Staying at CBR. Will arrive before ck in time. Is early ck in possible? If not, where could we change into swim gear? Extra cost to store luggage until ck in?

    Hi Amy!
    Excellent questions! Although early check-in is highly unlikely, it is possible. It is certainly worth asking the Cast Member at check-in if your room happens to be ready. This has only worked for me on one visit, so plan accordingly. However, If you don't at least ask, the answer is always "no". Rooms are supposed to be ready for check-in by 4PM. There is NO cost to have the bellman store your luggage until you have checked in.
    In the meantime, if you want to use the hotel pool while waiting for your room, which my family and I did back in December, you can change in the lobby restrooms, or, even better, in changing rooms near the resort pools. For example, we stayed at the Contemporary and there were changing rooms, lockers, and even complimentary life vests (for the little ones), right next to the pool near the snack bar. Depending on your resort, I would simply ask at check-in, or double check with a lifeguard for a spot to change. This will be no problem! Of course, you are also free to head straight to one of the theme parks and have your luggage delivered to your room later. Your choice either way. Enjoy your vacation!! :)
