    We will be driving to WDW and staying at PO Riverside. Is it possible to check in online ahead of time and go straight to the bus to get to the park, or do we need to unload luggage & check in at the desk first? Can our luggage be taken to our rooms?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I can completely relate to how excited you will be to get straight to the park when you arrive at Walt Disney World. You can definitely check-in online beginning 60 days prior to your vacation. When you arrive, you can head straight to the online check-in desk. You can have bell services hold your bags while you are at the parks. When you check the bags in with the Bell Hop, they will tag your luggage and give you a ticket. When you arrive back to the resort at the end of the day, you can call down to Bell Services and have them bring your luggage up to the room.

    Since you are driving, you can also just drive straight to the park and leave your luggage in your car. Then you can go to the resort after a day of fun at the park and check-in.

    If you buy your tickets ahead of time, you will get your MagicBand in the mail and you can use it on the first day of your vacation. You'll be all set when you arrive! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
    Magically,
    Stacy
