Are Bell Services open at the resorts? Specifically for storage of luggage. Staying at Beach Club starting June1st. Arriving early and want to head straight to the parks.

I know it is off topic when you get grocery delivery, do you need to specify somewhere to bring it to bell services? Also do you need to inform bell services you stuff coming? We will be arriving around 10 AM and dropping luggage off and going to MK, will have groceries delivered late afternoon.

Yes they are - you will need to be in the room if you ask them to bring your luggage to your room.

You just give the resort address, they’ll almost certainly have been there before. You could let Bell Services know, but no need to.

What I am concerned about....

Now that ME no longer has a bag service... everyone must carry their luggage, and "stick it" with Bell Services :(.
Just a guess.... Bell Services recently had their work load doubled, or tripled :(. With no trucks moving luggage? Poor Bell Services staff labor & storage just went through the roof :(. Just us.... unless staff has VASTLY increased? We will try our best to not use them :(.

ME Didn't store bags? Didn't Bell Services always store the bags when you arrived? At least that is what happened when we went in Dec 2019

I hope all those extra people tip! They are almost exclusive Americans now, so I assume most do.

I don't think ME has ever had bag service. A separate company hauled luggage back when it was hauled for free, and when it got to the hotels, they hand it to the bell service, who then haul it to the rooms. So bell services are not working more than normal. If anything, they are probably working less than the free luggage days, being that people are hauling their own luggage directly to their rooms, except for guests who arrive early and need luggage stored, which they did before too.

I think it would be interesting to find out (not that anybody is likely to gather this data, though) whether the number of bags and average bag weight per guest has gone down significantly since the discontinuation of DME's luggage transfer services. I suspect it has: now that people have to be responsible to move their own stuff around, they'll be a bit less likely to pack everything but the kitchen sink.

After some unfortunate incidents with checked luggage, my husband and I decided a few years ago that we would fly carryon only and keep our bags with us when we traveled, and it has certainly motivated us to master the art of packing light. If you embrace the challenge of whittling your packing list down to the "bare necessities," it's kind of fun, and as the song promises, your lighter load helps you "forget about your worries and your strife." :) For their own sake and for that of Bell Services, I hope more folks will be inspired to try it.

To add to this... Disney Security is very good at pointing the delivery services to bell services. All the delivery service needs is your Resort Name and the name on your room and you only have to be there if there is alcohol.
What company does everyone use for grocery delivery?
I recommend Instacart
