    On the day that you arrive at a resort, can you use the EMH. Even if we are talking about getting there for the morning hours and you might not be checked into your room yet?

    In order to participate in Extra Magic Hours, you will need to show your Key to the World Card (room key) at the theme park entrance turnstiles.

    If you're early risers or are feeling particularly ambitions, it is possible to get your Key to the World card very early in the morning, prior to the morning EMH. What you'll need to do is go to your hotel and "preregister." This is basically like checking in, except for the getting into your actual room. Once you've registered at the hotel, they will give you your Key to the World card (which will also include your park tickets and any meal plan credits that you've purchased). You can preregister at your hotel at any time during your check-in day, even as early at 5:00 a.m.

    If you'd like to leave your luggage at the hotel while you're off exploring the parks, just stop by the bell services desk and they will store it for you in a secure location. You can also leave your cell phone number with the check-in desk and they will call you or text you when your room is available.

    Have fun in the parks!
