Disney ceases the transfer of perishable goods.
In a post-dated July 17, website PlanDisney.com described the current luggage transfer guidelines. Initially, the reply on this official Disney travel planning resource confirmed that complimentary luggage transfers are still offered:
“I’m happy to tell you Bell Services is currently slated to continue offering luggage transportation between your Disney Resorts Collection hotels during your visit this November! Usually, the luggage being transferred needs to be given to Bell Services before noon, so keep that in mind when planning on transferring your things.”
Later in the response, PlanDisney stated that the transfer of perishable items is the responsibility of the resort guest:
“Bell Services cannot transfer perishable items, so those will need to also go with you.”
