    Hi, We are planning a Dec trip to Disney with 2 nights at the All Star Movie. Can I park at the resort in the morning of check in, use bus to the park, then return later to check in? Also the 3rd day after checking out, can I leave my car and use the bus?

    Hi, Bryan! Yes, you may park at your Resort on your arrival morning and use Disney transportation to get to the parks.  I would encourage you to go ahead and check in while you are there.  You can do this anytime on your arrival date.  Even if it is before the check-in time, you will go there to get your Key to the World card. It serves as your room key, park tickets, and dining card, if applicable. You will need it to get into the park and to use your Disney Dining Plan, if applicable.  Your room will probably not be ready if you check-in before the set time, but you can leave your bags with luggage services, and go enjoy the parks! Disney has a wonderful service that will call or text you to let you know when your room is ready. Then, with your Key to the World card in hand, you can begin your day of fun in the parks. You are considered a Guest until midnight of your check-out day, so parking at the Resort that day will be fine as well.  Happy planning and have a magical vacation!
