    Hey, Louise and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for your trip across the pond to the "Most Magical Place on Earth."

    One of the best aspects of a Disney vacation is being immersed in nostalgia and fantasy. No hotel does it better than Disney's Art of Animation Resort. We just got back from a stay there and it was absolutely awesome. From tip-toeing through the Elephant Graveyard to cruising through Radiator Springs, this Resort hotel is truly Disney.

    Walt Disney World Resort hotels have a standard check-in after 3:00 PM and a check-out by 11:00 AM. Requests for late check-out may be granted if space is available. For Guests like you and me who want to stay as late as possible in the theme parks before heading back home, Bell Services, at each hotel, will allow you to store your bags (carry-ons included) until you are ready to leave. You may either take them directly to the Bell Services desk or contact the front desk and request assistance. You will be given "check-in tags" to keep track of your luggage. If you are using Disney's Magical Express you will receive a "hang-tag" notice on your room door the night before telling you the time of departure. Please make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to retrieve your luggage from Bell Services and are not late, like the White Rabbit from Disney's Alice in Wonderland, for your flight.

    Disney Dad Tip: We always leave our luggage at Bell Services and use an Uber/Lyft or Minnie Van Service to get us directly back to our hotel. We just want to spend every available minute with Mickey and the gang.

    Louise, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
