    I have a reservation at Saratoga Springs but will arrive before check in. I plan to go directly to Pop Century to take the Skyliner to Epcot. Can I ask bell service at Pop to transfer my luggage to Saratoga even if I'm not staying at Pop?

    Hello Jennifer!

    It's great to see you back at planDisney with another question. I'm happy to assist!

    I can understand why you'd want to get an immediate start on the fun at EPCOT once you've arrived. In fact, a friend and I planned the same during our stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa last year. We booked a Lightning Lane Entry via Disney Genie+ Service, hopped on an early flight, and quickly dropped our bags at the resort before boarding the bus to EPCOT. We also arrived well before the official check-in time, but Bell Services was happy to hang on to our luggage until our room was ready.

    Though I can appreciate wanting to sail directly to International Gateway at EPCOT via the Disney Skyliner, unfortunately, Disney's Pop Century Resort would not hold your bags without a reservation there. Additionally, luggage transfer is reserved for guests switching from a reservation at one resort to a second resort during the same stay. You would not be able to utilize this service since you won't be a registered guest at Pop Century. I'd plan to travel directly to Saratoga Springs and drop your luggage there. The bus pick-up area is just a short walk from Bell Services near the main lobby, and the travel time to EPCOT was quick once we were on board. I'm hopeful your fun won't be delayed by this change in plans.

    When you return to Saratoga Springs at the end of the day you can call Bell Services and request your luggage to be delivered right to your room. Keep in mind you will need to be present to accept the delivery. They will not automatically drop your luggage in the room without you there to meet them.

    I hope this clears up any confusion, Jennifer. If we can answer any additional questions please don't hesitate to come back and let us know.

    Magic and memories,
