    My daughter, grandson and I are checking in early 8/29 & staying a total of 5 days. How early can we check in? Can we take advantage of Magic Hours that day? How do I find out which parks are having MH and when? Grand-son's 1st trip. Can't wait!!! Than

    Yo, Virginia. Check this out: you can check into your hotel super early. Like 10 days in advance. Uh huh.

    Visit to get started when your time comes. 

    You can arrive at your resort in the morning and pick up your packet, including your Key to the World cards, which will have your park tickets on them. You can store your bags with guest services and go grab a bus to a theme park.

    On Aug. 29, Animal Kingdom has morning Extra Magic Hours and Hollywood Studios has evening Extra Magic Hours. You can find a listing of Extra Magic Hours on the Park Hours page on the Disney World website.
