    Can I check into my resort early, even if the room isn't ready, and then use the morning extra hours?

    Hi Michelle, 

    Yes, you are welcome to check-in to your resort once you arrive. Official check-in time is at 3:00 PM at resort hotels and 4:00 PM at Disney's Deluxe Villas. However, you can leave your luggage with bell services and they will hold it for you until your room is ready. Once you are all checked in, you are free to head to the parks and enjoy your day. You will be eligible to use the morning Extra Magic Hours, or you can head out and explore the amenities at your resort. If you leave your cell phone number with the front desk, they can text you when your room is ready. This way, you can head straight there once you return to your hotel. Simply call bell services from your room and they will bring your bags up to you. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel for assistance planning your vacation! Please let us know if we can help further. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
