    After checking out of our Disney Hotel could we leave our luggage (and car) at the hotel while we head to the parks? Our flight is later in the day and we want to make the most of our trip!

    Hey there, hi there, Alyssa! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    You sound like someone after my own Disney heart, Alyssa. Making the most of every magical moment on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the name of my Disney game. Even though you have to check out of your Disney Resort Hotel, you are still on vacation until you arrive home, and I'm thrilled to help you soak up every last drop of magic!

    I think you will be happy to hear that you can absolutely leave your luggage with Bell Services at your Disney Resort Hotel and your car in the Resort's parking lot while you go enjoy your last day in the theme parks after checking out. Before you leave for the parks on your checkout day, just pack up your luggage, count how many bags you have and call Bell Services from your room's phone. A Cast Member will come to gather up your luggage and give you a claim ticket, and then, you can be on your magical way! I recommend being packed up and ready at least 30 minutes before you plan to leave for the parks to give Bell Services time to get to your room if they are busy also assisting other Guests. 

    Just be sure to take a picture of your claim ticket, just in case you lose it while having a blast in the parks. Then, once you're back and ready to head to the airport, just bring your claim ticket to Bell Services in or outside of the lobby of your Resort to claim your luggage. Enjoy maximizing your magic, Alyssa!

    I hope this helps, Alyssa, and I hope you have the most magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth this summer! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
