Disney World Planning 101 - Renting a Locker 1

As you may have read in my previous post, Skipping the Bag Check, I really enjoy not having to carry anything in the parks. Most days require carrying at least a few items, though, so I usually carry a light-weight back pack with my essentials. This is a way to make sure I have whatever I need on hand at any given time. A great alternative to carrying a bag is renting a locker. Granted it is not quite as convenient, but it does enable more freedom, especially on days that require jackets and maybe extra (dry) socks or shoes for the kids. Additionally, some of the lockers are large enough to hold a soft-side cooler, thus enabling you to pack a picnic lunch and save some money.

For our convenience, each park and waterpark has lockers available for rent. The policy for renting lockers at the four theme parks is:

  • Must pay per-day fee plus a $5.00 key deposit which is refunded when the key is returned
  • Key must be turned in within an hour of the park closing
  • The key operated lockers can be accessed as often as desired

If you are visiting more than one theme park on the same day, you can save money this way: 

  • Return the key for the $5.00 deposit and get a receipt
  • Take the receipt to the next theme park
  • Present the receipt, pay the $5.00 key deposit and you’ll have a locker for the remainder of the day

The locker locations, sizes and costs for each park is shown below:
