    How early can I check in? I'm so excited bring my grand kids and want to enjoy the hotel

    Hi Jo!

    How wonderful that you will be sharing a magical Disney vacation with your grandchildren!  Here's hoping that you create special memories with your family during your time at the Walt Disney World Resot!

    Should you arrive at your Walt Disney World resort hotel prior to check in, you have the option of checking in to your resort, and they will notify you when your room is ready, either via text or phone call; or you can head straight to the theme parks and check in later, when it is convenient for you. The choice is entirely yours. You may arrive and check in to your hotel from 8 a.m. on, however keeping in mind that there is a good probability that your room will not be ready until later in the day.  

    Should you arrive early, you can opt to leave your luggage with bell services while you are off enjoying the park, and just pick it up when you return to your resort!
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
