    Kelly Asked

    We are driving to Disney and want to be at the park when it opens on our first day there. We are staying at AOA and didn't know if it would be better to check in first to park at the resort, or head straight to the parks and check in after the parks close

    HI Kelly!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If you have a package reservation, meaning room and tickets, then you will want to go to your resort first in order to pick up your park tickets.  However, if you have a "room only" reservation then it is really up to you.  You could go directly to the park and just check-in later in the day or in the evening; that is what I would do if I wanted to have a full day in the park.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
