Just pack something light to tide you over til you get your luggage--no need to tote a heavy bag around--I've seen people who carry all their luggage on so they can carry it all off and have to carry and drag it around for an hour or more. And, it will go by fast anyway.
There has to be a certain amount of time for the attendants to get their work done from the thousands who just unloaded so the thousands boarding can have a clean toilet and bed.
But, you'll make it just fine and hope you smooth seas and warm, warm weather !!
