Moderate resort check in

    Angie from KY Asked

    From the park hour schedules it looks like we are arriving the day of extra magic hours for animal kingdom (that morning) even though we haven’t checked in yet because we are arriving super early, can we still do the extra magic hours for the morning?

    Hello Angie! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question. When my family travels to the Most Magical Place on Earth from our home in Alabama we often arrive very early. We love to drive through the night while our children sleep and arrive at the break of dawn. I can see your concern about wanting to get straight to making magical memories as soon as you arrive.

    In order to take part in morning Extra Magic Hours you will need to be checked into your Disney Resort hotel. The good news is that this can take place as early as 6 a.m. on your arrival day. Simply stop by the front desk of your hotel and they will activate all the perks of staying at a Disney Resort hotel for you.  Some of these perks are Extra Magic Hours and complimentary parking. I can not guarantee your Guest room will be available that early but you will be able to check in.   You can even opt to receive a text message when your room is ready. The text message will contain your room number and location. Once you receive the text you can head straight to your Guest room and open the door with your MagicBand.  Isn't that awesome? You will not have to stop by the front desk again.  

    Angie, I encourage you to complete Online Check-In as well. Online Check-In will expedite the process once you arrive at the hotel, as all your vital information will already have been filled out and stored. Walt Disney World really does make vacationing as simple as possible.  

    I hope you have a vacation you will never forget. Stop by again if we can be of assistance. We always love to help out a fellow Guest.  

    Have a Magical Day,
    Jen
