    We are coming to WDW 6/ 23-6/30. We will arrive to the All-Star Sports resort around 11:30-12. I know checkin time is 3. Can we swim and do other things around the resort before we checkin? Also any help planning 5 days hop would be appreciated.

    Hi Kerrie,

    When you arrive the All-Star Sports Resort, go directly to the Front Desk to check-in. While rooms may not be ready until 3 p.m. (the official check-in time), we've been in our room as early as 9 a.m.! Of course, this is more likely in the off-season.

    However, you can go ahead and check-in, then the resort will notify you by phone when your room is ready or you can check back at the Front Desk for your room number.

    You are more than welcome to go ahead and swim, etc. as guests of the resort. We've also used our resort's amenities while waiting for our room. This is a good time to look around the resort and familiarize yourself with the food court.

    Here's my suggestions for an itinerary! On the 29th, hopping to Epcot will be your best bet. However, on the other evenings, I would go where you most feel like visiting.

    6/23 arrival
    6/24 Epcot
    6/25 Epcot
    6/26 Disney's Hollywood Studios
    6/27 Magic Kingdom
    6/28 Magic Kingdom
    6/29 Animal Kingdom, hop to Epcot
    6/30 departure

    Let me know if you have any further questions. Have a great vacation!
