    Hello! We will be using the Magical Express from the airport. I understand that Disney takes care of the CHECKED bags for us, but what about CARRY ON bags? Will we have to carry them around the park until we can checkin to resort at 3p (we arrive at 10a)??

    Hi Emily!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The great thing about staying at a Disney Resort is that they want you to enjoy the Disney Parks. When you arrive, if your room is not ready, you can leave your carry on bags with Bell Services, free of charge, and begin your park adventure! When you do your on-line check in you can also request to have your room ready early. There are no guarantees, but I can tell you that it has always worked for me. Hope this helps!

    Did you know?: Staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of benefits. One of my favorites are the Extra Magic Hours where Guests can enjoy the parks before they open to the general public and after they close to the general public. Additionally, Disney Resort Guests can make their FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before check-in when you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation! Be sure to download your My Disney Experience App for your smart phone! 
    It has been a real pleasure assisting you! If there are any other questions you may have, please feel free to send them my way!

    Happy Planning!
