    If I go straight to the Contemporary Resort from the airport, can I temporarily leave my bag with the desk even though I'm not staying there? The resort where I'm staying is a long bus ride both ways, and I would like to explore different resorts.

    Welcome to planDisney Diana. Coming straight from the airport into all the magic is my kind of plan. Let's help you figure out what options you have to store your travel gear. 

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is an awesome start to your Disney vacation. Might I recommend making a reservation for a great place to eat? Chef Mickey's is a buffet-style restaurant that has frequent visitors to each table. Chef Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald Duck come around while you are making sure your plate stays full of all those goodies. I love it here for breakfast or brunch because of the famous and delicious Mickey-shaped waffles. The perfect setting and monorail whizzing by make this a perfect start to your resort visits. You will not be able to use Bell Services to store your bag. Unfortunately, the Bell Services at each location can only accommodate guests of that particular resort. To avoid both long bus rides in between, I would suggest having your mode of transportation take you straight to your hotel to drop your bags with Bell Services at your home resort.

    If you are staying at one of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels you may also be able to request an early check-in. While it is no guarantee that the cast members at the front desk will always be able to help. They always try to accommodate you according to availability. If your bag has a nice set of wheels you can always just roll it alongside of you. It can also act as an extra souvenir holder as you visit each resort. Believe me, the gift shops draw you in every time.

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your visit after you arrive safely from the airport. Visit us again anytime at for help with planning and tips for getting around the parks. 

    Have a magical day,
