    Are we able to take advantage of morning extra magic hours on our arrival day prior to check-in at 3pm?

    Hi there, Robert! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and ask your Walt Disney World Resort question!

    Staying at a Disney Resort hotel is nothing short of a magical experience! Guests staying at one of the over 20 resorts are immersed in a specific theme and placed right into the magic of Walt Disney World Resort! In addition, there are quite a few other perks included whenever you stay at a Disney Resort hotel. Some of these include complimentary MagicBands, special early FastPass+ reservations, complimentary transportation to your Disney Resort hotel from Orlando International Airport, and so much more.

    One of my favorite perks to use, though, is Extra Magic Hours! Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel are given access to one of the four theme parks either before or after normal operating hours each day. This can be a great way to maximize your time in the parks and squeeze in a few extra attractions! Plus, from September 1st until November 2nd, 2019, Guests can participate in "Extra" Extra Magic Hours and experience even more fun before the parks open!

    You and your family will definitively be able to use the early Extra Magic Hours prior to your official check-in time! To avoid toting around your luggage, you can even drop off your bags with Bell Services while you visit the parks and pick up your items when you're ready to return to your room!

    I hope this information assists you in planning a magical arrival day to Walt Disney World Resort!
