    If my family arrives before check-in time, is there a location we can leave our luggage?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Eric and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Mickey does not miss a step when he knows his Guests are ready to enjoy the world-calls attractions in his theme parks. I mean, it is called the place "where dreams come true" so you need to get to those dreams and not worry about luggage.

    Whenever we arrive before official Disney Resort Hotel check-in or before our room is ready when we have completed Online Check-In, we drop our bags at Bell Services in the hotel lobby and jump on the next bus to begin our adventure. Luggage, carry on, computer bag, grocery bags, backpacks, whatever, all dropped off. The only item that is not dropped off is my theme park bag with my "must haves": hand sanitizer, coins in a container for souvenir pressed coins, headaches medicine, sunscreen, portable rechargeable battery and cable for my smartphone, autograph book and marker, and some prepackaged snacks for the kids. When we return to the hotel later that evening, we retrieve our luggage and head to our room.

    My new favorite feature of the My Disney Experience mobile app is the ability to unlock your Disney Resort Hotel room door. Open the app and select "Unlock Door" and the door unlocks automagically. Presto!

    Disney Dad Tip: Make sure to take pictures of your Bell Services Luggage tags just in case they get misplaced.

    Eric, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
