Disney cruise - checking carseat at port?



We are brining a convertible carseat as well as booster seat (debating on backless or high back) with us on a disney cruise. With regards to the carseat - has anyone checked it on the disney cruise at port (upon boarding but before stateroom is ready)? Were there issues? Seems a lot of ppl warn against it but I also have seen pics of carseats on top of the "pile of luggage" so someone must be checking them. Curious if it was really as dangerous and bad as everyone warning? (we will be bringing our inexpensive, spare carseats...not our main carseat...so other than driving to Space center and then back to MCO the day after cruise, we won't use the carseat much)

Hi there! What's the concern with checking the carseats? We've been on 3 Disney cruises (without carseats though) and I've always fretted about the luggage, but it always magically (Ha! See what I did there? We were on the Magic twice ;).) appears where it's supposed to appear.

What are the ages and weights of your kids? You may want to consider more travel-friendly seats. For instance, the BubbleBum booster can easily fit into a kid's backpack or larger "mom" bag. If your younger child is close to booster age, I might consider a Ride Safer Travel Vest, especially if you can sit next to them in the vehicle. That way you can keep your restraints with you, then toss them under the bed in the state room without taking up any closet space.
