    We are coming in late October and staying at Art of Animation. We should arrive around11:00 am and doing the online check in. I understand there is an area we can leave our bags. Must we pick them up by a certain time to take to our room once its ready?

    Welcome Home, Bonnie!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Your vacation is quickly approaching and you are doing a fantastic job planning every last detail! I am thrilled to answer your great question about Bell Services at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

    Bonnie, I am happy to hear that you will be using Online Check-In and taking advantage of the great services offered by Bell Services when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. You will find that your Resort hotel arrival will be simple and expedited! I always use Online Check-In in order to maximize my time at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and Disney Springs.

    You will not need to pick up your bags from Bell Services by a certain time. In fact, Bell Services has held items for me overnight when I have had split Resort hotel stays or have traveled with car seats or large items that I have needed them to hold for me.

    Many Guests (including myself) choose to utilize online-check in, complete check-in upon arrival, and then spend the day at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks! Once you are done at the theme parks, you can travel back to your Disney Resort hotel, grab your bags from Bell Services and go straight to your room. You do not need to rush or be back by a certain time, even if your room is ready! Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members work hard to make your vacations stress-free.

    Bonnie, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any other questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you plan a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
