    Hello, could I drop my bags at Disney luggage services of my Disney hotel the night before we check in (i.e. the Friday night if my reservation starts the Saturday) we would like to go direct to the parks on Saturday and we are staying somewhere Friday

    Hey there, Eduardo, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question. One thing I love about Walt Disney World Resort Vacations is that they start the moment you enter the coveted “bubble.” No matter when you arrive, a Cast Member is always ready to welcome you home. 

    Eduardo, you are free to drop your luggage at your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel on the morning of your check-in and head straight to the Theme Parks. Unfortunately, I confirmed with a Guest Services Cast Member that Bell Services is not allowed to hold luggage before your check-in date. Since you’d like to maximize your time in the Theme Parks on Saturday, I recommend getting an early start to the day and dropping your luggage off before the Theme Parks open. This way you can drop your bags off with a Bell Services Cast Member and be on the first Bus to the Theme Parks. You won’t miss out on any of the fun! I also suggest that you utilize the mobile check-in feature within the My Disney Experience mobile app. This feature will allow you to choose your expected arrival time, and while there are no guarantees, this will help the team plan for your arrival. You never know; your room may be ready when you arrive! But if your hotel room needs a little more time to perfect itself, you can head to the Theme Parks, and the My Disney Experience mobile app will automatically notify you once your room is available.

    I hope this helps, Eduardo! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
