    Traveling from abroad, my flight arrives early arround 7:30AM, have reservations on the poly, and character breakfast on epcot that day at 8:30am! Can I leave my bags on the poly until I can check in? and pick my arm bands so I can go to epcot?

    Hi there, Christian!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  

    I am concerned with your timetable.  If your flight arrives on schedule at 7:30am, you will not be able to make your 8:30am reservation for dining at Epcot Theme Park.  If things go smoothly, you most likely will not make it to your hotel before 8:30 or 9:00am.  I suggest that you think about changing that dining reservation to a later time or day.  

    Once you arrive at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, head directly to Guest Check-In.  Although your room may not be ready, you will be able to complete the check-in process which includes receiving your MagicBand.  You can store your bags with Bell Services and go out to enjoy the parks.  You will also have the option to receive a text or phone call notifying you when your room is ready.  

    Let us know if we can help with any additional questions.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
