    We are arriving a day before our resort reservations and plan to stay a another hotel close by. Would it be possible to check our bags at Bell services at Pop century the day before we check in? Then we can hit the parks early and not transport bags?

    Hi Sarah, thanks so much for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As a fellow Ohioan, I completely sympathize with wanting a break from this winter weather and heading to sunny Florida as soon as possible! I am so excited that you'll be at Walt Disney World in less than 10 days! Mid-January is a great time to visit, as holiday crowds begin to decrease and the temperatures are often very comfortable.

    You're in great hands at the Pop Century Resort, Sarah! I just spoke with a wonderful cast member in bell services at the resort and he informed me that it should be no problem for you and your family to check your bags at bell services the day prior to your check-in! He wanted me to pass along that you should swing by the luggage desk just outside and to the left of the main lobby area at Pop Century Resort, and specifically indicate that you would like your bags held overnight because you will be checking in the next day. You could even ask bell services to deliver your luggage to your resort room when it becomes available! Also, make sure you take advantage of online resort check-in prior to your check in date so that you will be able to receive a text message with your resort room details the minute they are available! Be sure that you keep valuables with you, as well as magic bands and any necessities you will need in the parks as you head off on your adventures. 

    I am so excited for you Sarah, and I know it will be such a relief to know your luggage is in great hands as you make the most of every precious vacation moment. And did you know that right after you drop off your luggage, you will be steps away from the Disney Skyliner, which will be ready to sweep you off to your adventures at Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios?  

    I hope you have a magical stay and please bring some sunshine back to Ohio when you return!

    See ya real soon!
