Yes, you would be able to check in then. They will hold your luggage if your room is not ready. They will call or text you when your room is ready. I would recommend online check in for an early arrival. However, when we checked out a little after 7am there were people checking in. Your vouchers should come with your Mickey mail prior to traveling.

We checked in about 10:00 and we were not able to do online check in for some reason, but the room was ready. Even if it's not, they will give you all your keys with tickets and dining whenever you check in. Sometimes they tell you the building you're in with a map and if you give them a cell #, they will call you with the room number when it's available.

I highly recommend online check in. All your documents are printed up and ready to go - you just pick them up at the online check-in desk and you're on your way!

How far ahead can you check in online? And if we booked our package through a travel agent can we still check in online?

If your room is not ready and you leave your luggage with the bellhop - will they deliver it to your room?

10 days prior to check in. You should be able to do it regardless of who you booked through! Go online to the WDW website and enter in your confirmation number and it should pop up and tell you when you can check in online.

I don't believe the deliver it automatically when the room is ready, but when you get to your room, you can call for it.

They did for me, but I also had luggage coming over as a transfer from another resort as well, so when that arrived the brought what I had stored and the transfer luggage all over at the same time.

When we checked into Port Orleans in September our room was not ready, but we were able to get our keys and do all the paperwork. The hotel called about 2 hours later to give us our room number. It should be the sane here hopefully.

We leave Tuesday for our first AOA Cars suite stay! So exciting. I have never done online check in. How exactly does it work? You do it online with your confirmation number and then what happens when you get there to the resort? Is there much to do around the resort? Like a half a day worth of stuff? Swimming? Photo opps with Cars characters. I want to give us time to look around and enjoy the resort, but will probably be itching to be in a park! Not long now ...

There are 3 Cars buildings - 1, 2 and 3. 1 and 3 are the closest to the food court. The room numbers on the bottom floors start with 1501 and 3501. I'm not sure which end those start on though. You don't want the end near building #2 if you want to be close to the food court.

We were in room 1531 on the first floor of building 1 with a pool view. We thought it was a great room!

I have another question, what is the policy on late check out? Is it even available? How would we do it?

You have to call down to the front desk about 7am on the morning of check out and ask, but they usually only give you until 12 or 1, if anything at all.

Whenever we would call the night before they said we had to call back the next morning to see what check in looked like and I didn't tell them, I had to ask.
