    Hi, We'll at WDW for 9 days and staying at Cont. Our flight comes in at 9:30am.check-in isn't until 3pm. Can our luggage be held or early checkin? We have a 9daypass & want to go to the park before check-in. How do we do this?

    If you are using Disney’s Magical Express for transportation to the Contemporary Resort, you will stop at Disney’s Welcome Center, Terminal B, Level 1 upon your arrival at Orlando International Airport. If you have tagged your luggage to go directly to your resort, you’ll only be taking your carry-on luggage with you on the Magical Express bus.

    Luggage transfers usually take at least 3 hours from your arrival to reach your resort. Your luggage will be left in your room while you are at the parks!

    If you have chosen to get your bags at Baggage Claim, when you board the bus, your luggage will come directly with you to the hotel. Once at the resort, you should utilize Bell Services to store your bags until your room is ready.

    When you arrive your resort, if a room is ready you will be allowed access immediately. If not, you’ll be given a card which will have a phone number for you to call for your room assignment. When you return to the Contemporary after playing in the parks, you’ll be able to go directly to your room and phone Bell Services for luggage delivery. If you used Magical Express, your luggage may already be in your room.

    So, no worries!
