    If I arrive at disney around midnight I know my pass starts then but where do i sleep or go if my rooms arent ready till 3 pm can i request them to be ready midnight thirty

    Hi Parletta and welcome to planDisney. I am so happy you stopped by to share the news you are visiting Mickey and the rest of the Fab Five. They are so excited to meet new friends and revisit old ones. 

    Here is how Online Resort Check-In works at Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Beginning at 3 PM, unless a room is ready earlier in the daytime, you are able to check in to your room. Since you are arriving around midnight the same day that you are checking in you will need to add a hotel night to the beginning of your reservation. Then you will be able to go check in to the hotel and catch some sleep before the excitement begins. Another option is to take a flight (or drive) so you arrive in the morning or early afternoon of your check-in day. 

    With the way you have described your arrival time, you are without a place to go at 12:30 AM. 

    planDisney Pro Tip: Many times we have arrived after 1:00 AM to check in to our Disney Resort Hotel. When we could not add a night to the beginning of our trip due to availability at our primary hotel we made a reservation at a different Disney Resorts Hotel.

    Parletta, I hope this information clears up any confusion. I am here to help you with any follow-up questions so feel free to write me back directly

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
