    Do the Disney Resorts store your luggage for you when waiting on transport to the airport? Say checkout is 11:00 am, but you will not be heading to the airport until 5:00 pm.

    Hello there, Michael, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Thanks for stopping by with your question! 

    Maximizing the fun by squeezing every last drop of Disney Magic from your time at Walt Disney World Resort is a wonderful way to get yourself ready to say "See Ya Real Soon!" While it's never fun to think about the END of a Disney vacation, kudos to you for doing so to wrap-up your plans - that's a planDrew-approved approach!

    I have great news: at the end of your stay at your Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel, you can leave your luggage at Bell Services! Whether you plan on visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios for one last ride on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance or decide to spend some time enjoying everything Disney Springs has to offer, you can rest assured that the Cast Members will take good care of your belongings! 

    I did something similar on my last trip, in fact! After checking-out of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, my flight home wasn't until 7 p.m. - plenty of time to keep the magic going! I left my bags with Bell Services (usually located right near the entrance to your hotel) and went on a whirlwind tour, using basically every type of Resort Transportation available at Walt Disney World Resort -  finishing up at EPCOT and a last-minute seat at the bar at Space 220! I still can't believe I got to eat there!

    When I returned, I simply showed my claim ticket to the Cast Member and they brought out my bags with plenty of time for my transportation to the airport. Though it was "time to say goodbye to all our company," collecting my luggage was as easy as Ralph's Burnt Pie. 

    Hopefully this helps you finalize your plans for May, Michael! I hope you have an incredible time, and that you and your party make the most magical memories! Thank you again for your question, and if you come up with any others as you finish planning, you know where to find us here at planDisney! 

    TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!
