    Hello, We’re going to Disney World in June and staying at Art Of Animation. My question is will the front desk or bell service still hold our luggage for us if we arrive before check in and after we check out?

    Hey howdy hey, Megan!

    Awesome news that you will be staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. This one really excels at merging artistry and Disney characters. My son shared some interesting trivia with me about this resort recently. Did you know that there are thousands of statues at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort? Better yet, they are all sized to make the Guest feel like the main character from that particular Disney movie. One of the many reasons why I love staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel: getting immersed in the magic of Disney! 

    “You’ve Got a Friend” in the Cast Members at Bell Services. They make storing luggage before Check-In and after Check-Out a breeze. If you do arrive before Check-In time, you can leave your bags and take off for one of the theme parks or Disney Springs. Bell Services will be more than happy to check your luggage for you if your room is not ready. Upon your return to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, you can claim the bags from Bell Services or have them delivered to your room. I recommend a few dollars per bag as an appropriate tip to thank them for their assistance. 

    Similarly, at Check-Out, you can also leave your bags with Bell Services and then head out for some more playtime before you have to leave for home. I'd suggest contacting the Front Desk to give them a heads up that you plan on leaving luggage with Bell Services. 

    Now that you know your baggage is all taken care of, you can make all the fun theme park and resort exploring plans! Don’t forget that you have to make a Disney Park Pass reservation for each day you plan on visiting one of the theme parks...and since you are traveling in June, grab those now while they are available! 

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Megan...to infinity and beyond!
