    Hi all, I have a question regarding taking luggage on buses. We are staying at BLT but have to meet someone at AoA before heading to DCL. Can I take the resort buses with large suitcases? Thanks!

    Greetings Diana, from a fellow Ontarian and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm happy to see you're planning on cruising with Disney, we too, love experiencing the fun at Walt Disney World Resort before and after a Disney Cruise.

    Disney Bus Transportation throughout Walt Disney World Resort does not allow luggage of any type on their buses.

    Suggestions and Tips:

    -Book Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation from Bay Lake Tower to Port Canaveral. You will be picked up from your Disney Resort hotel around noon while your luggage will be scheduled for pick-up by 8:00 AM on the day of sailing. This early luggage pick-up gives you the opportunity to fulfill your visit at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and make it back in time for your Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation pick-up.

    -Leave your luggage with Bay Lake Tower Bell Services, head out to fulfill your visit and head back to Bay Lake Tower in time for your Disney Cruise Line Ground Transportation pick-up and take your luggage with you, it is allowed on these buses and placed beneath in luggage storage.

    -Written notice will be sent to your Disney Resort hotel room for sailing day pick-up time and location at Bay Lake Tower. 

    -Consider taking a cab to Disney's Art of Animation Resort and back to Bay Lake Tower to save time.

    -Leave your luggage with Bay Lake Tower Bell Services, fulfill your visit at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and hire a private car for the ride out with luggage to Port Canaveral, or consider Car Rental Services at Walt Disney World Resort with your luggage in tow.

    Magical wishes,
