Honda Center is home to the Anaheim Ducks NHL team at 2695 E Katella Ave, Anaheim, CA 92806. Honda Center promotes a no-bag policy as the general rule for fans who want to bring a bag into the hockey venue. The two exceptions to the no-bag policy are bags smaller than 5” x 9” x 2” can enter the arena. Those types of bags are typically purses and similar kinds of bags that are small. The other exception to the no bag policy rule is allowing diaper and medical bags to enter the arena as long as they don’t exceed 12” x 12” 12”.
Here is the complete Honda Center bag policy guide for your next event!
How Does the Honda Center Security Team Review Bags?
Fans arriving at Honda Center for a game or concert will go through a metal detector screening at the gate before scanning their tickets to enter the arena. Fans with a small purse (or medical bag) will go through a bag inspection check at the gate. As a reminder, Honda Center has a no-bag policy, so traditional backpacks and similar bags can’t enter the venue, even if they are clear bags.
Below are the types of bags that fans can bring into the Anaheim Ducks Arena for a game or concert.
- ADA-specific bags
- Medical bags/Diaper Bags that don’t exceed 12” x 12” x 12”
- Small purses/wallets/ etc. that don’t exceed 5” x 9” x 2”.
What the Prohibited Items that Fans Can’t Bring into Honda Center?
Fans heading towards the Anaheim Ducks venue for a game or concert should know that certain items can’t enter the arena. Some things the security team won’t allow to enter the venue are below. Read the whole building policies guide at hondacenter.com for the entire breakdown.
- Bags larger than 5” x 9” x 2”. (However, the exception to that rule is for medical bags and diaper bags.)
- Laptops, tablets, and similar devices

Is There a Bag Check or Locker Storage Area at Honda Center?
There is no official locker storage area at Honda Center for fans to use if their bag can’t come into the arena with them. Your best option on what to do with a bag that can’t enter the venue is to bring it back to your car and leave it there. From there, you must get back in line to enter the stadium.
If you don’t have a car to leave your bag in, see if a nearby hotel or restaurant can hold onto your bag while you are at the game. The Ayres Hotel Anaheim and the Extended Stay America Orange County are the two nearest hotels to the venue within walking distance. Most hotels and restaurants charge a bag-holding fee, so expect to pay around $10 for each bag you want to check. Also, it is worth noting that hotels and restaurants have limited space to watch bags for fans attending a game or event.
Finally, another place you can leave your bags is at the Anaheim Regional Transporation Intermodal Center. The Anaheim Regional Transporation Center is less than a half-mile from the hockey arena, and they have lockers you can rent to leave your bag at while you are at the game. Also, like hotels and bars, there is a limited amount of locker space here to rent.
