We plan to use the ME bus from MCO to the ASMu for our early June trip. I am not inclined to let them pick up our bags from baggage claim, since I've heard that they can take up to 5-6 hours to deliver the bags to the rooms. We are flying in from Idaho and the earliest we will be at the airport will be 3:30pm-ish. That would put our bags in our rooms after 9pm or later and I'm just not ok with that. My first question is, if we get our own bags- do we just bring them with us to the bus and they stow them underneath? Also- will getting our own bags screw things up and make us miss our bus to the hotel? And finally- I hear that we can check our luggage quite early on the morning of departure at the baggage check counter at the resort...then they handle the bags while we get breakfast and relax until our ME bus back to the airport. I'm thinking we would need to catch a 9am bus, so we could check bags around 7:30 and grab some breakfast. We would be able then to bypass the lines to check bags at the airport. Is this a good idea or should I just keep managing our own luggage?
