it with Owner's Locker
If you frequent the Disney
Parks in Orlando, there is a great resource available to help
you store all your "Disney needs". If you're like us, you
have typical things you bring with you on every trip to Disney.
You know, the Mickey ears, the Disney shirts, the special
Disney towels, and all those other things that you may only
use while in The World.
Most of these items
take up quite a bit of space in my luggage, so getting an
Owner's Locker was an excellent option for us. To get started,
you need to visit www.ownerslocker.com
to set up your account. There is a charge of 99.00 per year
with a one time membership fee of 75.00. Once you set up your
account and make the payment, all you have to do is schedule
your delivery. You tell them when and where to deliver your
locker and it will be waiting for you at bell services (don't
go to the front desk, I figured that out the first time I
went to pick it up).
The locker is a
purple box, similar to a storage tote you would use at home.
For more information on size, visit this link: www.ownerslocker.com/lockers.
It comes with dividers for things like standing shampoo bottles
up and sorting out everyone's t-shirts. A small box for jewelry,
hair accessories, medicine, etc. is also included. It is a
fairly large box and when packed right, you can fit quite
a bit in there! We filled ours up the first time and we're
already considering getting a second one!
Once your vacation
is over, and you have packed your locker, you seal it up with
one of the provided seals. These are similar to a zip tie
and includes a number so you will know that no one opens but
you. Once you're all sealed up, you take the locker back to
bell services and the purple Owner's locker van will come
and pick it up. (I highly recommend having bell services come
and pick it up-free of charge) Once Owner's Locker picks it
up, they return it to a climate controlled storage center
to keep your items safe until your return.
The Owner's Locker
website has a management piece that lets you track where your
locker is located. In other words, you can log in and see
if the locker has been delivered to the resort or see if it
is back in the storage warehouse. Owner's Locker also sends
you an email (or even a text message) to let you know of your
piece of the website also allows you to keep track of an inventory
of your locker. A paper copy of the inventory will be given
to you when you get your locker. Be sure to write down everything
included so you'll remember what NOT to pack on your next
I'd highly recommend
this to anyone that travels to Disney World often. Not only
does it make packing so much easier, but it also makes for
a little extra fun when you pick it up!
