    Check in isn't until 3pm...What happens if I'm early? I don't want to miss out on a day at the park waiting for my room. I won't have a phone on me.

    Hi Steve!

    No worries!  You can check-in when you arrive at Walt Disney World.  Even if that's at 1 am in the morning.  Of course your room may not be ready, but you can pick up your theme park admission (if you have a package), drop off your luggage, and go have fun in the parks!  You can just return later in the afternoon or evening to get into your room.  I do this all the time, and sometimes I do get to get into m y room very early in the morning! 

    By the way, I have had the most luck getting into my room early when i do online check-in.  I definitely recommend giving that a try!  Good luck!
