    Doing a Wish cruise. Plan to fly to Florida the day before and stay at a Disney resort, and on disembarkation we plan to check into a Disney resort for 4 more days. When checking out from the 1st Disney resort can bell services take care of our extra bags?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Monica!

    As an avid Disney Cruise Line - Platinum Castaway Club member, I can say with pride and great enthusiasm that the majority of our vacations were Disney Vacations by Land and Sea, many of which include a Disney cruise sandwiched between two Disney Resorts Collection Hotels stays - it’s Magical and Wonderful and Dreamy, incredibly Fantastic in every way leaving us with more Disney Wishes for Disney cruises!

    My personal experience regarding luggage storage vacationing as a Guest at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and sailing with Disney Cruise Line was that it could not be stored at our Disney Resort Hotel during our sailing, but my general rule of thumb in life is that if you don’t ask, the answer will always be no. So it never hurts to ask a Cast Member at Walt Disney World Resort - Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, but Monica, please be prepared for a response against what you are hoping for. 

    Monica, there is a lot of space in the Disney Cruise Line staterooms - the bed is raised allowing for ample luggage storage beneath, and there is also plenty of storage in the closet areas. One packing tip I have which really helps me greatly is that in addition to my day bag on the day of embarkation, I separate our belongings in suitcases by destination. So, our Walt Disney World Resort clothes are stored in one or two suitcases which I tuck away beneath the bed and our Disney Cruise Line gear in others. A handy resource to aid with your packing decisions is the Disney Cruise Line Packing List - it keeps me in line for sure!

    Many friends of mine have opted to store their luggage at, or near Orlando International Airport for a fee per day. A quick online search will pull up many of these places with reviews from past clients which may be something you wish to consider if you have a great amount of luggage to store and really do not want it onboard. 

    For your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort please ensure you make your advance Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations for each day of valid theme park admission, as this is the process of visiting the theme parks at this time.

    Download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App and the My Disney Experience App to manage your plans before and during your Disney cruise and vacation at Walt Disney World Resort respectively.

    Please refer to Walt Disney World Resort’s - Know Before You Go resource and Disney Cruise Line’s - Know Before You Sail resource in preparation for your vacation as operational guidelines continually change.

    Monica, I hope this information is helpful, it was my pleasure assisting you today and I wish you the most magical Disney Vacation by Land and Sea!
