Lost Items at Walt Disney World to be Donated After 30 Days

Lost items happen.  It can happen to the best of us, especially when you are on the go in the parks.  When lost items are found, they are typically taken to the front of the park.  At the end of the evening they are noted with which park and date they were found.  They are taken to a main lost and found location on property where guests can then go if they don’t collect the item from the front of the park on the same day it was lost.  Previously, the items were held for 90 days for guests to claim and collect the property.  Now there has been a new bill passed in Florida that allows theme parks to donate the items after 30 days instead of waiting until 90.

Lost items in the Disney theme parks were previously sent to the police departments in the area, but now the items will be donated to non-profit organizations and/or families in need.  It is unfortunate that so many items go missing daily at Walt Disney World, but at least we know that the items will benefit others that could use the help.

Have you ever lost anything while at Walt Disney World?  Did you get your items back or were they lost forever?
