    We will be staying in the AKL Club Level Std room. We are flying in from Texas and I was wondering if Disney will provide a place to store our luggage should we arrive at the park a few hours earlier that the 4pm check in time? Is that doable?

    Hi Star,

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! If you have never stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort, you are in for a real treat. This Resort is one of my favorite Deluxe Resort hotels and I could enjoy myself at this Resort for an entire week without leaving the grounds, especially if I were Club Level!

    You have two options for transporting and storing your luggage. First, if you are flying into Orlando International Airport you may add the complimentary Disney's Magical Express transportation to whisk you and your luggage to your Disney Resort hotel. With Disney's Magical Express you will have special luggage tags mailed to you just prior to your vacation which you will affix to your luggage. After you check your luggage in at the airport when you are departing you will have nothing more to do and your bags will "magically" appear in your Disney Resort hotel room approximately 3 hours after you have arrived. If you happen to check in earlier than standard check in time, your luggage will be placed in your room sometime after the posted check in time.

    Your second option is to retrieve your own luggage at the airport when you arrive in Orlando and bring it with you (via either Disney's Magical Express or your own method of transportation). Once you check in at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort if your room is not quite ready you may drop your luggage off at Bell Services and they will store your luggage for you until you return to pick it up that day.

    I hope this information helps you with your vacation planning. Here is a link for more information about Disney's Magical Express and checked luggage.

    Have a Disney Day!
