    Hi Jason, I saw your recent answer to a question about luggage storage on arrival day before the resort room is ready. Would this also work for our departure day if our flight does not leave until the evening after our 11am check out? Thank you. Jenn

    Oh, boy! Jennifer and welcome back to planDisney. I am so grateful you reached out to me with this question because it is a staple of our Disney trips. Yes, you may store your luggage at any Disney Resort hotel on your departure day until you are ready for it.

    I drop luggage off at almost every visit at the Disney Resort hotel that is closest to the theme park or dining location I visit on my last day. On my visit in December, we stayed off-property but wanted to dine at Casey's Corner inside Magic Kingdom Park before heading to the airport. We had too much stuff to rent a locker. We got dropped off at Disney's Contemporary Resort, checked five pieces of luggage plus a stuffed Disney shopping bag with souvenirs with Bell Services, and walked over to Magic Kingdom Park. After lunch and riding a few attractions (including my favorite Haunted Mansion), we returned to Disney's Contemporary Resort to retrieve our luggage and then head to the airport. Easy peasy.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Take a picture of the checked luggage receipt from Bell Services just in case it decides to go on its own Disney adventure.

    Jenn, I am here and would love to answer more of your questions to help with your magnificent May Disney vacation.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
