    We have a reservation for a Disney Resort Hotel starting on a Tuesday, but plan to get to the park early in that day, can we park at the hotel and use the Disney transportation, even though we can't check in until later in the day?

    Hi Patricia,

    Even though your room might not be ready yet, you can (and should) check in early in the day. You can do this as early as about 5:00 in the morning. As soon as you arrive at WDW, go to the hotel and register. They will give you a parking pass and your Key To The World Card. The KTTWC will be loaded with any dining plan credits or park tickets you've purchased. You can also use this to charge items to your room and, eventually, to open your room door. 

    After this you can store your luggage at Bell Services and use Disney transportation. 

    The front desk will call or text you when your room is ready later in the day. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
