    What times are check in/check out? If our flight arrives before check in or leaves later in the evening after check out What do we do with our luggage if we are at a Park or Disney Springs?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Stacy. We're so glad to see you again and so happy to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     I always intentionally schedule an early arrival and a late departure for our Disney vacations. Who wouldn't want a few extra hours at "The Most Magical Place on Earth," right? At Disney Resort hotels, check-in is scheduled for 3:00 PM and the check-out time is 11:00 AM. (Check-in time for Disney Deluxe Villas is 4:00 PM). If you arrive before check-in or plan to depart after check-out, and you'd like to spend some time exploring the theme parks or Disney Springs, not a problem! Bell Services will be happy to hold your luggage for you. Isn't that great?

     Be sure to complete the Online Check-In process before your arrival. This makes check-in a breeze! When you complete the Online Check-In process through My Disney Experience, you can make room requests, add your mobile number to receive text notifications (like a text that your room is ready!), and create a pin for purchases charged to your Disney Resort hotel account. You may be able to skip the Front Desk entirely and head straight to your room! It's super convenient. 

     As you're counting down the days to your visit, take some time to review the Know Before You Go section of the Walt Disney World Resort website. It has lots of important information about the health and safety measures being taken in and out of the theme parks. 

     I hope this was helpful, Stacy. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
