    We are preparing for our first Disney cruise. We will be staying at a WDW resort before and after the cruise. Do you think we could leave a couple of suitcases at the resort instead of taking it all on the Wish Ship?

    Hi Minde. Thanks for reaching out to planDisney!

    Wow! A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort followed by a cruise on the Disney Wish? Now that is a spectacular vacation. Can I tell you a secret? I have actually never been on a cruise...but I'm hoping to rectify that soon and I think I'm going to take a page from your book and stay in the Most Magical Place on Earth first, then relax on a Disney Cruise Line ship.

    While you can usually leave luggage with Bell Services for a few hours if you are checking in earlier than when your room is ready or checking out earlier than when you have to depart, you cannot leave luggage with Bell Services for an extended period of time.

    But don't worry, Minde, I've got some solutions for you. At this time, each Guest on a Disney Cruise Line ship can bring 2 suitcases, 1 carry-on bag (not to exceed 9" x 14" x 22"), and 1 personal bag. You should be fine as long as each Guest doesn't exceed that amount of luggage. And just so you know, the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels all have self-service laundry facilities, dry cleaning, and valet laundry service. Disney Cruise Line ships also have self-service laundry and full-service laundry pickup. This way, you can possibly pack lighter for your extended vacation and just plan to do some laundry at some point! Speaking of packing, while you are getting ready, be sure to check out Disney's Cruise Line's packing lists for suggestions on what to pack.

    No matter how many suitcases you bring, you are bound to have a truly exhilarating vacation. There are so many new and exciting things to see at the Walt Disney World Resort, like TRON / Lightcycle Run Presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park and Roundup Rodeo BBQ at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Plus, you're booked on the latest and greatest Disney Cruise Line ship. When I book my first cruise, it's definitely going to be on that ship and I think I'm most looking forward to Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure!

    If you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please feel free to reach out to me. If you need more information on your Disney Cruise Line sailing, you can contact my friend, Tracie, a Disney Cruise Line Specialist!
