    Can anyone tell me what time check-in is for ASM resort? If we arrive around 11-12 and room not ready, is swimming reasonable with 4 adults, 2 kids?(Thinking of where to change,store wet clothes, ect.) Would like to swim then go MK. Thanks


    Actually, going for a swim when you arrive is an excellent idea! It is a great way to unwind after all that travel, and re-charge before you head to the Magic Kingdom.

    Check in time is 4pm. So what I recommend is that you pack in your carry-on bags your swim suits, towels, and a large plastic bag as well. You need the towels since they are not provided at pool-side. You should pack this stuff in your carry-ons since you may not get your bags from the Magical Express service for a couple of hours after you arrive.

    You can change in the lobby bathrooms, which are near the pool.

    When you are done swimming, put your swim clothes and towels into that bag and check it with the luggage desk in the lobby. You can pick it up later that night when you return.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions if you have any! Just go to my bio page to ask.

    Have a magical vacation!
