Question about early check in and Magical Express

First time staying on property and using Magical Express here! So our day 1 plans are land at MCO around 9:30. Take Magical express to CBR and arrive around 11AM, does that sounds accurate? We have an ADR at Tusker House for 1pm and plan to check in at the resort to be sure our magic bands will work and head to Animal Kingdom for the rest of the day. My question is is check in at CBR is not until 3pm and we will be at the parks at this time, do our bags get brought to our room when its ready or will they be at the main check in when we get back from AK? Also, will the resort be able to hold on to our carry on luggage (not handled by ME) until our room is ready or until we get back to the parks? If we use the online check-in option and request early check-in I know this does not guarantee our room will be ready early but it should help, yes? If we use the online check-in does that negate the room request through TP? Thanks!

You’ll arrive between 11-11:30, yes.

Your bags will go directly to your room whenever it becomes available. Bell Services will be very happy to hold your carryons - these you will need to retrieve upon return. Online checkin is not related to room request unless options selected there conflict with your room requests.
