    If I can’t check in in at 3 do they take way my reservation?

    Hiya, Ian!

    Welcome to planDisney!  How exciting that you have a Disney vacation on the horizon.  Ian, staying in the magic is one of the best ways to maximize your Disney vacation because not only are you immersed in unique theming that transports you to a whole new world. But you can enjoy so many benefits such as early theme park entry, 30 minutes before theme park opening, proximity to the theme parks, preferred access to hotel dining reservations, and so much more.  

    Ian, the "check-in" time for the Resorts is typically a guideline to let you know when your Resort room will be ready. If you are not there right at check-in time, Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries." You can check in when you arrive at the Resort. 

    I recommend downloading the Disneyland Resort app to your phone and log into your Disneyland account, and you can actually "check-in" early from the app! Then, when your room is ready, you'll receive a notification with your room number, and then you can go right to your Resort room when you arrive to the hotel.  You can even use the Disneyland app on your smartphone to open your Resort room door - like magic!  If you have trouble getting into your room for any reason, you can use one of the on-floor phones to call the Front Desk (these are located near the elevator) and someone can help you.

    I hope this helps you, Ian. If you have any further questions, stop back here to see us and we will be so happy to help you.  Have fun making the most magical memories on earth!

    See ya real soon,
