    Two questions please - 1. Do the rooms at the Animal Kingdom have blow dryers? 2. We are arriving early and leaving late - can we leave our carry ons at the hotel when we arrive before room is ready and can we leave luggage there after we check out ?


    Thanks for your question!

    The rooms in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge do have blow dryers. As for storing your bags, yes, you can leave your bags at the bag check, both upon arrival and on your departure day. 

    So when my family comes to Walt Disney World, we always use Disney's Magical Express. As such we just go to the resort, drop off our carry-ons at the bell services desk (or in our room if it is ready) and get going to a park. We love not having to stop at the front desk, or worse yet carry the bags around in a park. 

    Of course on departure day we drop off our our checked bags via the Resort Airline Check-In, meaning we don't have to see them again until we are back home again in Indiana! At the same time we check our carry-ons back in at the bell services desk, so we can spend some time either in a park, at Disney Springs, or exploring a resort, again without having to carry any heavy bags around. When it is time for our bus back to the airport we get our bags and head home.

    Very convenient!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
