    If I arrive to Disney World on a Monday morning but don't check into my hotel until that afternoon, may I still enjoy early park hours for resort guests?

    Hey there Zoe and welcome to planDisney!

    Your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth just got a bit more magical because, Zoe, you can indeed take advantage of that Early Theme Park Entry on your arrival day even if your room isn't ready yet. Drop those bags off at the Bell Services desk at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel and get moving to the magic! But, for the record, don't be so sure your room won't be ready. Utilize the Online Check-In feature in your My Disney Experience app to let your hotel know your expected arrival time. That room just might be prepared for you to go take a travel day nap sooner than you think.

    Pro tip: Whether you're flying in or driving, Make sure to keep all MagicBands with you in your purse, backpack, or fanny pack. That way you're not digging through luggage trying to find them and wasting precious Disney time. I always pack mine in my purse and the first magic moment of our family vacations is passing out the MagicBands during the "Prepare for Landing" announcement.

    Zoe, if you have any more questions please feel free to come back to see us!

    Happy planing!
