    Hi , I am going to be staying at a dinsey world resort and I am traveling with 4 children ages 12,9,3,2. If my flight comes in before check in time what can we do until then and what do we do with our luggage.


    For arrivals prior to the check-in time, simply head over to your resort and check-in at the front desk. While your room may not be ready, you will receive your room keys, and if you've chosen a package, your park tickets and/or dining credits. Your room may or may not be ready at this time. If your room is ready - you're all set!

    If your room is not ready, Disney can either send you a text message or call you when your room is ready. Alternatively, you can call a specified number or check with the front desk later in the day to see about your room.

    If you are using Magical Express and they are transferring your luggage - no worries! They'll hold it for you until you're ready. If you've retrieved your luggage or have carry-on luggage you'd like to store, just visit Bell Services. They'll hold your luggage until you let them know you're ready for it.

    Once you've taken care of your luggage, then you can enjoy your day! If you'd like to enjoy the resort's pool - be sure to have your bathing suits packed in a carry-on so that you can change. Or, if you prefer, head right out to a park and start your vacation! Its up to you!

    Enjoy your trip!
