    If we take a red-eye in to Orlando, are there any amenities we would have access to while waiting for the 4pm check in at Saratoga Springs? Is there a room to change/shower in while waiting?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mino!

    Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is a fantastic location as your home-away-from-home during your stay at Walt Disney World® Resort. I also have some great tips on helping you recover from your red-eye while waiting for your Resort hotel room to become available. 

    • Participate in Online Check-In through your My Disney Experience Account. With online check-in, you have the option of receiving a text message informing you when your room is ready. Once you receive your text message, feel free to head straight to your room. In addition, there is an option to select any room requests your resort may have available, including the request to have your room ready early as top priority - there have only been a few instances when I've had to wait until official check-in time for my room to become available. 
    • I still suggest stopping by the front desk upon arrival so the resort is aware you are on-property. Many times this strategy has assisted in expediting receiving a room.
    • You'll find well-equipped public changing/shower areas at High Rock Springs Pool, located just steps from The Carriage House (lobby area). As a guest, you will have access to these facilities while you wait. 
    • You are also within walking distance, or a leisurely boat ride, away from Disney Springs, the perfect place to enjoy your day. Bell Services will stow your luggage for you, allowing you to easily begin enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World® Resort.

    I hope this is helpful in planning your early arrival, Mino! Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Having arrived early in the day during many stays at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, I'm here to help you maximize and enjoy your arrival. 

    Off to the races!
