    When staying at the Disneyland Hotel, if we plan to check out the same day we’re doing a day at the parks, can we leave our bags with the bell desk and can we leave our car in the hotel parking lot while we’re at the parks?

    Hey there, Jessica! Welcome to planDisney! 

    I'm so excited to see you here with such a great question, because that means you have a magical adventure at The Happiest Place on Earth just around the riverbend. And with a stay at the iconic Disneyland Hotel?! Eeeek! How exciting! I had the most magical and incredible stay at Disneyland Hotel a couple of months ago, and with its elegant rooms (and the most magical headboard I have ever seen), fantastic dining options, oh-so-fun pool, and proximity to ... well ... everything, it really is the perfect home away from home right in the middle of the magic. Now, let's chat about squeezing every last drop of magic out of your pixie-dusted vacation!

    I think you will be happy to hear that you can absolutely leave your luggage with Bell Services while you go play in the parks on your checkout day. In fact, since I had a late flight, this is exactly what I did on my checkout day! Simply pack up your things and call Bell Services from your room's phone or if you prefer, bring your luggage to Bell Services right in front of the Resort Hotel. They will provide you with a claim ticket, so keep it secure and take a photo of it on your smartphone just to be extra sure that you don't lose it on that last ride on the Matterhorn Bobsleds. Then, go have the time of your life and claim your luggage at Bell Services at the end of the best Disney day.

    And the good news just keeps coming, Jessica! On your checkout day, you can continue to take advantage of your Resort Hotel's amenities, including parking your car in the Resort Hotel's parking lot. My planDisney panelist pals left their cars in the parking lot on checkout day while we all had a blast riding our favorite attractions one last time and grabbing one last churro. Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!"

    I hope this was helpful, Jessica, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time at Disneyland Resort during the Disney100 Celebration! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have.

    You've got a friend in me,
