What not to bring

The following items are prohibited and can not be brought with you:

  • Pets (with the exception of fish in a five-gallon tank or smaller)

  • Weapons of any type
  • Hookah pipes / drug paraphernalia

Air Travelers

The Disney Housing team does not have facilities to store incoming participants' personal belongings. If you have belongings you do not wish to bring with you on your flight, you should leave these items with a family member or friend and have them ship your items as soon as you obtain your postal mailing address when you check in.

We would encourage you to research your airline's additional luggage fee because it may or may not be less than shipping your items via the U.S.P.S., UPS or FedEx.
