How to move around inside Zhangjiajie scenic areas without lugging baggage around?

Hi traveller friends, appreciate your advice on the following:

My friends and I plan to go to ZJJ this April (no organised tour, just self explore). We arrive at Wulingyuan and stay the night before entering the park.

Day 1 (and Question 1)
In the morning, we check out of our Wulingyuan hotel, enter the park, go to 10 Mile Gallery, come back to the Wulingyuan hotel at noon, take our bags and then take our bags, go by bus, then cable car up to Tian Zi mountain, check in hotel, explore in the afternoon and stay the night there.
Is it feasible to do this? (get in the park for 10-mile gallery, get out of the park to take the bags, get in the park again to go to Tian Zi mountain). Will it take too much time at the expense of sight-seeing?

Day 2
we move from Tian Zi mountain area to Yuanjiajie area by shuttle bus, do sight-seeing and stay the night there.

Day 3 and Question 2
We get down from Bailong elevator to Visit Jinbian area and Huangshi village area.
Question - can we get any transport directly at the bottom of Bailong Elevator, go to the park entrance to check into a hotel, dump our bags there, and then re-enter the park to visit Huangshi village and Jinbian area?
- Is any such transport available?
-Again, will this take too much time at the expense of sight-seeing?

I would really appreciate advice from all of you who have been and know the place, so that I can finalise a feasible travel plan. As much as possible, we dont want to lug around baggage while sight-seeing, as we will already be carrying camera gear of around 7 kg.

Thank you so much.

Q1: Your plan is feasible and the timing for sightseeing is fine. Have fun!
Q2: At the bottom of the Bailong Elevator, you can take the eco shuttle bus to Jinbian Stream area. Near the scenic area, you can check in a hotel and dump your luggage. Then visit the Jinbian Area and take cable car onto Huangshi Village for sightseeing.
