    We are arriving early for our reservation (around 5-6 am) will it be possible to collect our magic bands and vouchers for the meal plan that early and then return for check in later. Will be be able to make use of extra magic hours that morning?

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you for stopping by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'll be more than glad to help you with your questions today, so you can plan the most magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Resort Check-In time for most hotels is 3:00 p.m.; however, you can start taking advantage of your Resort Hotel benefits as early as 6:00 a.m. This includes relaxing at the pool, or taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours. When you arrive, simply stop by the Front Desk to start the Check-In process and collect your MagicBands. Your Theme Park Tickets will then become active, as well as any Dining Plan entitlements. And Bell Service will be more than glad to store your luggage until your room is ready.

    One last tip: you can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to keep track of your Dining Plan credits, take advantage of Online Check-In, make or change FastPass+ selections, and even get real-time Resort transportation times from your Resort hotel. See you real soon!
