    We will be staying at CBR before and after our cruise on the wish in December. We have arranged a transfer with Disney, what time do they usually arrive at the hotel to take you? And can we leave some of our luggage at the hotel whilst we sail for 4 days?

    Ahoy there, Amy! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    Ah, a pre-cruise stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort! You certainly know how to double-up the "Beachiness" of what is most accurately dubbed a Disney Vacation by Land and Sea! I love that resort's location right at the hub of Disney's Skyliner for the land portion, and as a way to get into the island feelings you and your crew will be sailing toward during the sea portion! That's 100% planDrew-approved! 

    Great job arranging transfers through Disney Cruise Line, as well! My family always does the same, and it's a great way to ensure that Disney will do the driving and get you to Port Canaveral right on time for embarkation! Talk about a stress-buster!

    When it comes to the timing of your pickup from the resort, you should receive information about the exact timing when you check in for your stay! If you've elected to use the Direct-to-Room Service, I'd suggest stopping by the front desk to talk with a Cast Member if you don't already have information in your room waiting for you! In my experience, since Walt Disney World Resort is roughly 90 minutes from Port Canaveral and Disney Cruise Line requests all Guests arrive by 14:45 p.m, the absolute latest you should expect to be on your way is 13:15 p.m.! That said, I'd anticipate your transportation to depart closer to 10:00 a.m. - but this is always subject to change, so whatever the official word you hear from Captain Minnie is, goes! 

    Unfortunately, Bell Services is not able to hold luggage for any Guests not actively staying at the resort, so you'll either have to tag all of your bags for embarkation, or find a luggage storage provider. I've never used one of these services myself, but have had friends do so with admittedly mixed results. If it were me, I'd plan on bringing all your luggage - especially since the under-bed storage in the Disney Wish's staterooms is quite spacious! 

    Thank you so much for your questions, Amy! I hope I've been able to chart a course that makes for smooth sailing! If you have any others as your trip approaches port, please drop me another line here at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
