We have a room at the Hyatt for Nov. Is there any problem getting from baggage claim back up to the hotel?
I was wondering that myself. Are there porters in the airport who can help with the luggage transfer to the hotel lobby, or do we rent one of the carts and wheel it ourselves? It's a lot of luggage to cart around and any help would be great. I know it's not a long walk, buy my DH cannot carry or push stuff for too long or too far.
There are porters and it's easily done - just tell the porter that you are staying at the Hyatt, and they'll take you the back way (across the parking garage, lol) to the Hyatt...
BUT!! We were told last time by the gal who checked us in that we could just go straight to the Hyatt and check in, and if we gave one of their bellmen our baggage claim tickets, they'd go get them and take them to our room .
I assume this kind of depends on how busy they are and the time of day you arrive - I don't think you'd want to leave your luggage endlessly circling the carousel waiting for a bellman if it was busy!
We haven't tried this yet - but DH fully intends to in November... so we'll see!!
One thing to note tho: make sure you wait to put your DCL tags on the bags until you are in your hotel if you are arriving the night before.
We were warned by a DCL vet and didn't tag ours since we were arriving the day before - and the front desk manager at the Hyatt said "oh good! You have no idea how many people tag them the night before and they go off with the Disney bags to get sorted instead of coming up the carousel - it can take hours before they realize the mistake and most people don't get their bags back until around 9 pm when they do that!"
