    Are you able to check in early at many resorts? I am staying at CSR and would love to check in early and get some sleep after working my night shift! Do I call the resort to ask? Does doing the early online check in help?

    Hi Kelly!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Early check-in arrivals is not something Disney will guarantee.  There are many factors that go into when your room will be ready.  (when the guests before you check-out, how busy the housekeeping staff is, how full the resort is, etc.)  So, even if you call, they won't be able to promise you anything.  

    I do recommend doing the online check-in process to get the ball rolling.  In all of our trips to Walt Disney World, we usually get into our room before the official "check-in" time.  It may not be as early as you are hoping, and it may not work out at all, but I do think you would have a good chance of being able to get in for a nap at least a bit early.  

    I hope it works out for you!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
