    On the day we arrive we want to go to a park but since checkin is not till 3 can we still go even though we haven’t checked in yet?

    Hi Bradi,
    How great to hear you have a vacation planned for this upcoming March! You will have a blast with all of the fun happening at Walt Disney World around that time (and always)!
    Many times, I have arrived at my Disney Resort several hours before official check-in time and that never stopped me from heading over to the Parks right away. All you need to do is drop of your bags, suitcases, backpacks and anything you've brought and don't want to take with you to the Parks (remember there is no-bags line at security check at the entrance to every Park) and Bell Services will give you a small card with your name, the number of bags you have dropped off with them and a number so you can claim your belongings when you come back after your day at the Parks. When you room is ready, you will receive a notification (a message or email on your mobile device), and at that point you may choose to come back to freshen up a bit or you may continue to have fun riding all of the rides you possibly can and return at the end of the day after the fireworks
    If your tickets are already linked on your My Disney Experience, you can simply go and enter the park without a problem. If you have will-call tickets or they need some sort of activation you can still go to the Park at your earliest convenience but may need to stop at Guest Relations outside of the Park to get them activated (be sure to bring a photo ID if that is the case). This is a simple process and does not require more than just a couple of minutes. 
    Bradi, I hope this information is helpful and I hope to see you again on the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions as you plan your perfect vacation.

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
