    If I book my hotel for June 10th and arrive at 11:30 pm on the 10th am I able to check in at that time?

    Hi Melissa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You will be able to check in to your Disney Resort hotel when you arrive for your vacation, even for a late arrival like 11:30 p.m. on the first day of your reservation. There will be Cast Members at the Front Desk to assist you. Check-in times are typically any time after 3-4 p.m., depending on the resort hotel, and late arrivals are no problem!

    You can also take advantage of Online Check-in with your My Disney Experience account which can speed things up for you when you arrive. Since you will probably be tired after a day of travel, spending as little time at the Front Desk as possible will be helpful! Utilizing Online Check-in also means that your room number may be texted to you in advance, and if you have your room number, you can skip the Front Desk altogether, head straight to your room and use your MagicBand as your key to enter the room!

    If you will be using Disney's Magical Express, Disney's complimentary transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel, don't worry ... it will still be operating that late at night. However, you will need to claim your own bags at baggage claim and take them to the bus with you. This applies to any flights arriving between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. 

    Please visit us again with any other questions you may have, Melissa! Happy planning!
