    Hi moms: Can we do early checkin to our resort? If so, how early? I would like to have that out of the way before we get on property. Thanks!

    Hey Karina-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. June is right around the corner and I know you are just jumping to get down to the place where dreams are made.

    Disney Resort Hotel check-in is at 3:00 p.m. for hotels, 1:00 p.m. for The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and 4:00 p.m. for Disney Deluxe Villas. If you are trying to get to the theme parks or a dining reservation and you arrive earlier than these standard check-in times and your room is not ready then you may check-in without going to your room. Just leave your luggage with bell services if your room is not prepared and ask them to deliver it to your room when it is ready. Services like Disney’s Magical Express will automatically arrange for luggage delivery to your room.

    To save time Disney does provide an Online Check-in service up to 60 days before your arrival. This will allow you to submit room preferences, credit card to be stored on file for incidental charges made through your MagicBand, check-in/out times and days, identify the guests in the room, provide a contact number and to create a PIN for those guests in your party with credit card charging ability. This should save you some time by not stopping at the front desk. Your luggage however will need to be stored by Bell Services if your room is not ready at the time of your arrive.

    Have a great time and please say "Hi" to Mickey from me.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
