    On the day I check into the hotel when can I get into the parks?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    On the day that you check in to your Disney resort hotel you can enter the park at the same time as any other resort guest. This means that if you are in a Disney resort hotel, you too can enjoy the Early Theme Park Entry program. That is the program that lets those participating guests enter any of the four theme parks 30 minutes prior to the posted park opening time. 

    BONUS TIP #1
    Your Disney resort hotel Bell Services desk can hold your bags on your arrival and departure days while you enjoy some fun in the parks! We use the Online Check-In service so we don't have to stop by the front desk after dropping off our bags. Later in the day we get a text telling us when our room is ready, and the room number is shown on the My Disney Experience App.

    On our final day we start by taking all our bags to the Bell Services desk, check them in, and then we are on a bus, monorail, or boat to our final magical escape. I do recommend that you make sure you return to the resort with maybe 10-15 minutes extra before your transportation pick-up time so that you can retrieve all your bags.  

    BONUS TIP #2
    For some resorts the Bell Services Desk will be located just outside the resort's main entrance, in others it is inside, near the front desk.  

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
