Bell Services: The Main Option for Storing Luggage
Disney Resorts offer several options for storing luggage conveniently and securely. The primary option is utilizing Bell Services, sometimes known as Luggage Services. Located at the entrance or exterior of each resort, Bell Services takes custody of both large suitcases and smaller carry-on items.
Guests who are arriving before check-in time or those wanting to spend a stressful-free day at the parks after check-out can easily leave their bags with Bell Services. This allows guests to enjoy their visit without having to haul around heavy suitcases from attraction to attraction.
Upon receiving luggage, staff members will safely store it in an area managed by only authorized personnel until guests are ready to pick it up during returns. For further convenience and security, Disney Resorts provide guests with claim tags for each piece of luggage delivered so that guests can return directly for each bag when needed.
How to use Bell Services
Using Bell Services to store your luggage is a simple and easy process. Upon arriving at the resort, you can make your way to the Bell Services desk where a friendly staff member will take in your bags and provide you with a ticket so that you can conveniently retrieve them when needed. If desired, they can also assist with transporting luggage right up to your room without any hassle or inconvenience. To arrange this service, simply call Bell Services from within your room and they will be happy to help.
It’s important to note that bellman services are provided free of charge and all items stored are kept in secure locations under 24-hour surveillance for added peace of mind. All items must be signed in when dropped off, but digital signatures can be used in lieu of an actual signature during pandemic conditions to minimize contact between guests and staff.
At the end of your stay, just remember to collect all tickets before leaving the resort so you don’t leave anything behind! With Bell Service there’s no need for worry – store away all those belongings with ease – it’s as simple as that!
Tips for using Bell Services
When using Bell Services at your hotel, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. To show your appreciation for the assistance you receive, consider tipping the Cast Member who retrieves your bags. Although gratuities are not mandatory, they are a nice gesture and greatly appreciated.
Also, be sure to check the hours of operation of Bell Services before dropping off your luggage. Hours may vary according to the season, so make sure to ask when you arrive at the hotel. Lastly, be aware of which types and how much luggage can be stored at one time. Items such as large or fragile objects should be noted when dropping off your belongings so that additional care will be taken in their storage.

Other options for storing luggage
Disney Resorts offer a variety of options for safely storing guest luggage. Bell Services is a secure option available at all Disney resorts, providing guests with efficient, on-site storage.
Another secure solution is the free Magical Express service which transports guests from the airport to their resort and retrieves their luggage for them upon arrival. The luggage will be delivered to their room within a few hours.
Some resorts even offer the Resort Airline Check-In service which allows guests to check their bags for their flight at the resort and print their boarding pass. This service is free (aside from tipping) but may not be available with all airlines.

This allows you to check your baggage and receive your boarding pass without having to wait in line at the airport’s check-in desk. It’s an ideal way to save time so that you can make the most out of your vacation.
Take advantage of Disney’s Bell Services to store those items. Simply leave any unnecessary carry-on bags with them and enjoy yourself in the park without any added hindrance or additional stress.
