    If we are arriving around 2 a.m. on 3 /31, would I book a room for 3/30 and just simply check-in online ahead of time? I want a room when we get to our resort but technically we're not arriving until 3/31. My kids will need sleep before park fun!

    Hi Gail,

    You will need to book for March 30 even if you are arriving after midnight. If you do online check-in, some of the resorts are participating in a test where they will text you your room number when it's ready and you don't even have to stop at the front desk! If that test has ended before you arrive, you can be assured there will be Cast Members at the Front Desk who will be able to check you in. 

    And yes, I can imagine you will all need sleep before fun at the Parks! Sending you pixie dust for smooth flights and quick check in!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be sure to let me know if I can help you with any other questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
