    Arriving on Monday, November 7, 2016. Can we use day 1 of park passes once we check in? We were planning on going to Epcot as soon as we check in. Thanks

    Hey there, Shanna!

    Thanks for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    No need to wait to let the magic begin, Shanna! As soon as you arrive at Walt Disney World, feel free to visit the park of your choice. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort and have completed on-line check-in, you can go straight to the parks without stopping by the front desk to check-in. As soon as your room is ready, you will receive a text message alerting you that your room is ready and the room number! So you can hit the parks and head to your room whenever you choose! 

    Also, if you arrive early or before the standard check-in time of 3:00 pm, you can still enjoy the parks until that time, and then you head over to the hotel, check-in, and enjoy the remainder of your Disney vacation!

    Shanna, enjoy your time at the most magical place on Earth! If you have more questions before your vacation, please visit with us again!

    Happy planning!
