    We will be checking in July 4th 2009 at All Star Movies. Can we arrive before check-in time to get our tickets? We will have our 1 year old and 6 year old sons...what "game plan" would you recommend for our first day there?

    Hi Jacqualine!

         Absolutely!  I recommend checking in to your resort and having Luggage Services hold your bags for you.  Simply purchase your tickets ahead of time, or once you arrive.  If your room is not ready, a Disney Cast Member will give you a telephone number to call for an update on your room status.  Depending on how long you have been travelling, you may want to bring whatever you need to "freshen up" in a separate bag.

         If you have enough days on your ticket, hit the parks!  If not, we love heading over to Downtown Disney for the BEST shopping and really cool restaurants.  I bet that your little guys would love Rainforest Cafe - it is so much fun!  Once your room is ready, just gather your bags from Luggage Services and get some shuteye - you'll need it!

    Much pixie dust,

    Jackie S.
