    We are staying off property for the first three nights. After that we are moving to a All Star Sports. It says check in isn't until 3 pm. Can you go early and get an earlier check in before going to the park? or will they hold our luggage?

    Hi Amber!

    Your family must be getting very excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. Staying on Disney property for at least part of this vacation will be a special experience. The All Star Sports Resort will offer you a great themed location, complimentary bus service to all parks and Disney Springs, and much more.

    Check-in is indeed at 3:00pm. This allows the housekeepers to finish the rooms for the new guests after the check-out time of 11:00am. You can arrive at any time in the morning of check-in day. Simply head to the front desk and if you are a very lucky guest your room might be available if no one has been in it the night before. You can also ask if there are any available rooms at that time in any building if you are not fussy.

    If the room is not ready you can leave your luggage with the Bell Staff at the resort where they will store it for you during the day. Once your room is ready you will receive a text message on your phone. When you return back to your resort let the Bell Service staff know you wish to have your luggage delivered or you can go yourself to retrieve it.

    Once you check in for your reservation no matter how early in the day it is you now can use all the transportation and amenities of the resort such as the food courts and pools. Disney recognizes that guests are eager to start their magical journey making lifetime memories!
