Bell Services at Disney World (how to store your luggage on travel days)

Bell Services at Disney World (how to store your luggage on travel days)

Truth be told:

Disney wants to make sure you get to pack as much fun as possible into your trip, all the way from the moment you arrive until it is time to head to the airport.

But, unless you went to Disney World empty-handed, you’re going to have a lot of bags to deal with (and if you “accidentally” buy a few things, you’ll likely have more bags than when you left home).

So, that begs the question: what do you do with your luggage if you have yet to check in or have already checked out of your resort?

Options for storing luggage at Disney World

Stashing your stuff so you can get one last dose of magic is easy to do at Disney World – and most of your options are even free (aside from tipping):

Bell Services/Luggage Services

Every resort on Disney property has Bell Services (also sometimes called Luggage Services). This is where grocery items that you might have ordered from places like Amazon Prime Now or Instacart are delivered, but it is also where you can store your bags and carry-on items on your arrival and departure days.

Bell Services

Using Bell Services is free (aside from tipping) and is a great option for both full-sized suitcases and smaller carry-on items.

Luggage Services

Using your car

If you have your car with you or if you have rented one for your vacation, you’ll have the option to store items in it.

This isn’t the ideal situation, but if you can get stuff hidden safely away (for example, in a trunk so it is out of sight) and you don’t have anything that could be damaged by the heat, you could just leave stuff there. 

This isn’t the best option, but it might work for some people.

Finally, all the parks (and even the water parks!) have handy lockers that you can use, and, while they won’t hold full-sized pieces of luggage, if you travel light you may find that smaller carry-on sized items will fit.

By using a locker in one of the parks instead of stashing carry-on items at Bell Services you skip having to return to your resort before heading to the airport.

There are definite size limits, though, so don’t try showing up to the parks with a giant rolling suitcase; this option is more for people with backpacks and large purses, not giant pieces of luggage:

  • Standard/Small (12.5″ x 10″ x 17″) –> $10/day
  • Large: (15.5″ x 13″ x 17″) –> $12/day
  • Extra Large/Jumbo: (17” x 22” x 26”) only available at Magic Kingdom and Epcot –> $15/day

Can you use bell services even if you aren’t staying at the resort?

@Elise, I'd like to know this too...We're staying at FQ but that is a hike to get back to on departure day possibly. Partially debating moving backpack/bag to another hotel closer to park we'll be at last day, say Riviera, and having Mears pick up from there for airport transfer.

I am coming to magic kingdom on March 21st right when park opens and will be taking an Uber to SFB for my flight at 8:50pm. I need to store my checked bag preferably by the transportation ticket area where Ubers pick up, is this an option? If so what is the earliest time I can drop my suitcase off? What is the fee?

No, that isn't an option. You'll need to stop by your hotel first. The only fee for bell services is the tip when you pick up or have your bags delivered.

Hello, I am not staying at the resort but am checking out of my offsite hotel the morning I plan on attending Disney. I will be heading to the Hyatt at MCO after visiting the park. We will have two carry on size luggage pieces and two smaller carry ons?

What are my options? Thank you

How early can I drop my bags off at bell service? We are changing resorts and just want to store them but want to be at the park by 7:30 am
