    We are staying at the Contemporary. If we arrive before checkin, can we park our car there, leave our luggage with concierge and take the monorail to Epcot? Also, on day of checkout, can we also leave our luggage and car and head to parks?

    Hi Nisha!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You will love the location of Disney's Contemporary Resort, just a short walk from Magic Kingdom Park, linked by the monorail to Epcot, and with stunning views over Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake.  I am always mesmorized when watching the monorail glide silently through the middle of the hotel!  Amazing.  I also thoroughly recommend dining at California Grill on the 15th floor - those views of Magic Kingdom Park!!  The great news is that whatever time you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel, if your room is not ready you can store all your luggage, safely and securely, with Bell Services (it will be completely safe, inside a password enabled storage room which is fully air-conditioned) . If you have any food that needs to be kept refrigerated, they can also store that for you.  Then you can head out to Epcot using the monorail, enjoy your day, and return to collect your luggage when your room is available.  I did this just the other day, and it worked like a dream.  If you use Online Check-In, you will receive a text message when your room is ready, and also details of your room number.  You may also park your car at the hotel, but on your arrival day, before actual check-in, I would visit the Front Desk to advise them that you are leaving your car there.  There is now an overnight parking fee at all the Disney Resort hotels - you can see full details here.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
