    We are traveling to Disney Dec 17-21 and staying at a hotel off Disney's property. We can take a taxi to our hotel but we arrive at 9am and can't check in till 4pm. What do we do with our luggage if we go to the park in the meantime? Do we bring it in?

    Hi, Tara! You might want to check with your hotel to find out ahead of time if they can store your luggage until check-in and if they provide complimentary transportation to the WDW theme parks. Otherwise, you'll need to do a little pre-planning before you pack. There are lockers at each of the four theme parks, but the largest ones are 17" H x 12"W x 22" D. They cost $9 per day plus a $5 key deposit which is refunded when the key is returned. The good thing about these lockers is that you can access them as often as you like.

    There are luggage lockers at the Ticket & Transportation Center and at Epcot (which are a little larger  than the other lockers). However, they are coin operated and require 4 quarters every time you access the locker. If your hotel doesn't offer luggage storage or complimentary transportation, I would consider taking the taxi from the airport straight to the TT&C to avoid having to pay for transportation back and forth from the hotel. If you pack lightly, you can store your luggage in a locker, and then take a taxi to your off-property hotel from the TT&C in the afternoon or evening.

    Hopefully, this will help you make your plans. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
