Are there lockers in the parks at Walt Disney World Resort?

When you’re planning a full day in a Disney park, you may want to bring personal items with you that will make your day more enjoyable.  An umbrella, ponchos, medicines, combs, fans, water bottles, sunscreen – the list goes on!  The challenge is, you may not want to CARRY these things around the park with you for the entire day, so what do you do?  Rather than leaving these items in your Disney resort room, you can rent a locker at the parks to store your stuff for when you need it.

In the parks they have different locker rentals to make bringing your items to the park more convenient.  No need to lug them around with you everywhere!  The storage lockers can be found at the park entrance to make it easy to drop off in the morning and pick up in the evening before leaving.  Remember that lockers are first come first-served basis so make sure you’re there early.

There are some things that you may want to keep with you at all times and you can store those in your backpack or park bag for the day.

Locker locations at the Disney theme parks:

Magic Kingdom Park:

Lockers are on the right side as you enter the park.  There are also complimentary lockers at TRON – but those are only to hold your things while you’re on the attraction.


The first spot is at the front of the park, on the right side Spaceship Earth near the restrooms.

The second is at the International Gateway entrance between France and the UK.  They are near the World Traveler shop and where you can rent strollers.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

When you enter the park on the right you’ll see Oscars, the lockers are right next to it.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom:

When you enter the park, on the left the lockers are next to the Guest Services window.

The second spot is near Kali River Rapids.  It makes sense – you get WET on this attraction and it’s a good idea to store your personal belongings before you get on!

How do you use the lockers?

The locker system is keyless and easy to use.  You can use it throughout the day for a one-time charge so that you can add or remove items during your visit.

If paying with cash (USD only) or a major credit card, you may proceed directly to the self-service kiosk to rent a locker. If paying with a gift card or Disney magic band, you need to visit the merchandise location nearest to the lockers for a Cast Member to assist you. They will process your rental transaction and give you a code to input into the self-service kiosk to give you access to a locker

Tips for Locker Rental at Disney Parks:

  1. Get a locker bigger than you think you need.  That way when you buy souvenirs during the day you can run them back to the locker for safe keeping.  The biggest locker sizes come in handy for those who like to shop!
  2. Take a picture of your locker number on your phone so you remember which one is yours.
  3. Set a reminder on your phone for 15 or 30 minutes  before you plan to leave the park or park closing.  That will remind you to stop by and pick up your things on the way out.  It’s easy to forget them when you’ve been there the whole day.
  4. In the parks where there are 2 locations, choose the locker area at the front of the park.  That way it is easier to grab on your way out of the park.  The last thing you want to do is remember your stuff is at the back of the park when you’re at the front leaving!
  5. Don’t overthink it.  Don’t bring that random item that you think there’s a 5% chance you might need in the park, leave it in your room.
  6. Leave your valuables in your room. All of the rooms at the Disney resort hotels have safes to store your valuables where the only way to open them is with the code you set or calling maintenance (don’t ask me how I know that – but make sure you remember your code!).
  7. At this time there are no lockers at Disney Springs so travel light and buy only what you can carry!
