    Jodi from ON Asked

    Are morning Extra Magic Hours available for me on check-in day? Also, parking is free for resort guests. Will I have to pay for parking on my first day in the parks before I check in at 3 at POR? Thanks!

    Greetings, Jodi, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, from a fellow Ontarian and Disney enthusiast!

    Disney's Extra Magic Hours are a great way to really enjoy some extra time at those popular attractions. In order to be able to partake in Morning Extra Magic Hours, Jodi, you must be checked into your Disney Resort hotel first. You can actually check-in as early as 6 AM on arrival day to be able to enjoy this benefit, but please keep in mind that your Guest room will probably not be available that early in the day. You can go on with enjoying your day at the Theme Parks and may opt to receive a Text Message Alert on your mobile device when your Guest room is ready.

    Parking at Walt Disney World Resort is complimentary for Disney Resort hotel Guests both at their resort hotel and at all the Disney Theme Parks. Upon check-in at your Disney Resort hotel, you will receive a Parking Pass to display on your windshield, which will then grant you access to park for free.

    Jodi, in order to enjoy your Morning Extra Magic Hours on your arrival day, I recommend you check into your Disney Resort hotel at 6 AM and may I direct you to expedite your check-in by completing Online Resort Check-In in advance of your arrival.

    Customize and control your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for such important details as Advanced Dining Reservations, selecting FastPass+ experiences and personalizing MagicBands, which will be waiting for you at the Front Desk on Check-In Day.

    Best Disney Wishes Jodi~
