    My granddaughter and I will be arriving Feb 8th at 10am, her first time!! I know check in isn't till 3pm for Disney Resorts, will the front desk hold our bags? Would like to go to Animal Kingdom before check in. Thank you

    Hi Pam,

    How wonderful to be taking your granddaughter to Walt Disney World for her first trip! You arrive so soon - you must be getting really excited!

    Yes, absolutely you can have your Disney Resort Hotel hold your bags for you if you arrive before your room is ready on your check-in day. Simply ask Bell Services to hold the bags for you and they will be there safe and sound for you when your room is ready.

    I love that you already have a plan for that first day. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is such a beautiful place to spend a day. Some of my family's favorites there are Kilimanjaro Safaris, on which you can see amazing animals as you ride through fabulous settings, and Finding Nemo - The Musical, which tells the Finding Nemo story with wonderful music and larger-than-life puppets. I am sure that you will have a great first day at Walt Disney World!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Pam. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
