    What time do I put for arrival for online check-in when we have multiple arrivals and my husband and I are staying the day before at the same resort? The rest of the party will use Magical Express.

    Hi, Kimberly!

    The biggest reason for letting your Walt Disney World resort hotel know what time you'll be arriving is so they can make some decisions about room assignments and prioritize housekeeping. While no room is guaranteed to be ready before late afternoon, I recommend putting down the time the earliest guest is likely to arrive. 

    Since you and your husband will already be enjoying your Walt Disney World, I'd put an earlier arrival time. There's always a chance your room will be ready early, which will make your transition from room to room a bit easier. 

    Your resort will always hold your luggage for you if your new room isn't ready if you have to check out of your first room or guests arrive earlier than the time your room is ready. You can just enlist the help of bell services, who will store your luggage until the room is ready. That way, you can hit the ground running and start your vacation!

    Have a wonderful time!
