Leaving some luggage at WDW while you cruise.

We are doing a cruise on the Fantasy in December. We stay one night at Art of Animation, cruise for 7 days, then 7 nights at BC. Will Disney allow us to transfer some of our bags from Art of Animation to BC and hold them for a week while we cruise? We would prefer not to take everything on the cruise.

I've read that this has happened. You need to contact the resort you're at after the cruise and confirm that they will hold your bags.

I'm sure others will chime in with a definite answer but I believe you can. We were staying at CSR once and had a rental car. Since we were staying at AKV 3 weeks later without a rental, I asked if I could leave a few non perishable groceries at AKV. The answer was no because I wasn't returning within 2weeks. Since yours is only a week, seems like they would allow you.

Three years ago, we left luggage at Pop, but we were there before AND after cruise.

Yes Bell Services will handle this for you. We did this in February with no issues! Our luggage was waiting at the YC after the cruise

I know if you are coming back to the same resort they will as I have done this a few times. Coming back to a different resort I don't think they will do it. They will do a resort to resort transfer of bags if you are staying at different resorts with no cruise. Did this my last trip. Not 100% sure but plan for a no answer and hope for the best. That's what we do.

We left our bags at AKL pre cruise and they were transferred to the YC. No problem!

We left our bags with the Bell Captain at BLT with the annotation to transfer to VWL for "long term storage" and our date of arrival post-cruise.
Everything worked well. (It was a 4-night oj the Dream)

Yes we too did this in September. We left 2 bags at Beach club and had them transfer it over to animal kingdom lodge for when we arrived back there. I don't know where they kept them or when they were transferred but the bags were waiting for us when we arrived at AKL

Ok good to know. I just remember the first time I asked the bell guy at AKL, and this was about 4 years ago, asked if I was coming back to AKL as that's the only way to do long term storage. Times do change.
