Updated for 2018!

Many Disney park go-ers are not carrying in large bags or strollers will pockets galore. Sometimes, no bags to carry can trump paying a fee to rent a locker.  For your convenience, all the Disney theme parks and water parks offer paid locker rentals. 


A one time fee grants you a key-operated locker with all day access. A $5 refundable deposit is also required for each locker key, and this key must be returned no later than one hour after park closing to receive your deposit back.

Small lockers are available at Magic Kingdom park.

Small and large lockers are available at Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom park.

2018 Pricing:


Single-Use Lockers

You’ll find single-use, coin-operated lockers near the bus information booths at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and at Epcot. The only for of payment accepted are quarters, and payment is required for each use.

At the Disney Hollywood Studios location, single-use lockers are 4” x 5.5” x 6”. The cost is $.50 per use.

At the Epcot location, single-use lockers are 23” x 16” x 29”. The cost is $1 per use.

All lockers are subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lockers at Water Parks

Both Disney water parks offer keyless lockers that can be used throughout the day for a one-time charge. To rent a locker, visit one of the electronic kiosks in the locker areas and choose the size you want. After paying the fee, you will select a 4-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number) that will open your assigned locker. 2018 Pricing:

The water park kiosks accept U.S. currency and major credit cards. All water park lockers are subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis.

We asked our followers on Facebook if they would ever rent a locker on a Disney vacation.

Karin, “Yes!! Frees up hands and you can go back for lunches or coats when needed.

Raquel, “We did a few years back. I think it was a party that night, and we had our rain ponchos and sweatshirts because the weather was supposed to be cold and rainyday that night. So we kept them in the locker until we needed them.

Nancy, “I rented one a few years ago in Epcot. We had a special dinner (just the two of us) planned at Sanaa, Kidani Village later that night. I stored a dressier change of clothing, heels, make up and a brush to fix myself up with in the lobby bathroom at Kidani after a long day at the park. It would have been a pain to go all the way back to our resort, and we did not want to waste precious park time!

Gina, “Yes. So I don’t have to carry my cooler and hoodie/jackets around all day. I store cold water, snacks, a sandwich, etc. I just plan for what time I’m going to walk back to the locker to eat. Sometimes it doesn’t get cold enough for the jackets, but it’s nice to know they are there if we need them. I always return the key at the end of the day and only pay $7 total for the day. For drinks, snacks, sandwiches and the convenience of not carrying stuff all day, the $7 is worth it to me.”

Mary, “Yes, I do! I spend $7 for a locker. However, I bring in my own water bottles (that’s $6 for a 20-pack outside the parks, or $3.50 each *in* the parks, thereby saving me approximately $30 or so over the course of a 4-day stay). I throw in a few granola bars ($2 at Walmart for like 10), so I don’t have to pay outrageous treat prices, saving me about $25 over those 4 days. I keep a coat in my locker, so I’m not tempted to pay $60 for a sweatshirt if the evening gets chilly. I put an extra pair of shoes in the locker too (comfortable feet, priceless!). I also put my coins in there for penny presses and such, so I don’t have to lug them around the whole time if I’m only going to grab 2-3 at a time somewhere. Not carrying around all that stuff means no back aches, and my feet don’t tire so quickly (again, priceless!).”

Rebecca, “Yes, when my husband and I went without our daughter. It was convenient since we didn’t have a stroller.”


Locker rentals can provide a stationary place to keep meals, snacks, valuables, and even souvenirs if desired. Renting a locker at a water park could be the most optimal location, since you will may be slipping, sliding, and swimming rather than sitting with your belongings.

The fees are priced lower than most counter service meals, which could be a deal if you need “stuff storage” during your vacation.
