    1. We have a very late flight the day we leave, is there somewhere to keep our luggage safe after check out, while still enjoying the parks. 2. Do the resorts offer any service to ship things home?

    Hello Kristen!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. That is so nice that you have a later flight home on your last day. The last day at Walt Disney World Resort is always the hardest for me! I find that from the moment I leave, I’m already brainstorming an itinerary for the next trip.

    There are so many benefits if you choose to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel, one of which is Bell Services. On the day of checkout simply visit the Bell Service desk, before heading to the parks, and let them know you would like your bags to be held until you return later. They will place coordinating tags on your bags and store them for you. They will also provide you with a baggage claim slip, to present to Bell Services, when you are ready to pick your bags back up.

    Dependent on which airline you are flying, you might even be able to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In as well. Resort Airline Check-In allows you to check in for your returning flight, collect your boarding passes, and even check your bags! All you have to do when you arrive at the airport using, Disney’s Magical Express, is make your way to security!

    Disney Resort Hotels do offer a home delivery option as well. Theme Park purchases can be shipped to your home via UPS or FedEX for an additional fee. We actually used this service this past spring with a large figurine we purchased in the parks. My husband simply took the package to the front desk at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and provided them with our home address, payment, and of course the package. Our package made it home about a week after we sent it out from Walt Disney World Resort. If I remember correctly, I believe ours was shipped by FedEX.

    I’m counting down the days with you until your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! Please visit us again if you have more questions as your arrival date approaches!

    See ya real soon!
