    I have a confirmation with Animal Kingdom and have the following question: we have a park pass for that day so plan to get there early, will the hotel hold our bags until check in and hold the day we check out?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, your Disney resort hotel Bell Services desk can hold your bags on your arrival and departure days while you enjoy some fun in the parks! 

    On our last trip we arrived at the resort at 10 am in the morning, well before check-in time. We used the Online Check-In service so we would not have to stop by the front desk after dropping off our bags. Later in the day I was sent a text telling me our room was ready, and the room number was shown on the My Disney Experience App. All we had to do was gather our bags from the Bell Services desk before turning in for the night.

    On our final day we start by taking all our bags to the Bell Services desk, check them in, and then we are on a bus, monorail, or boat to our final magical escape. I do recommend that you make sure you return to the resort with maybe 10-15 minutes extra before your transportation pick-up time so that you can retrieve all your bags.  

    For some resorts the Bell Services Desk will be located just outside the resort's main entrance, in others it is inside, near the front desk.  

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
