    Can we drive to MK on Disney Hotel (POR) check-in day in the morning to sign-in, get our MagicBands & head to Magic Kingdom? We know hotel check-in time starts at 3pm but how do we get into Magic Kingdom before that?

    Hello Matthew,

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel.  Sounds like you want to get a super fast head start on your visit to the Magic Kingdom.  Hotel check-in can be done when you arrive so you can receive your Magic Bands and be on your way. The 3:00 pm that is referenced is for room availability. In some cases your room will be ready when you check in, but if not, it will be ready no later than 3:00 pm.  Be sure to ask the Front Desk about notifying you via text message when your room is available. Also, the friendly Bell Services staff on site will hold your luggage until you get back.  Once you arrive at your hotel after a full day at the Magic Kingdom, your luggage will be transported to your room.  

    We'd love to answer more of your vacation planning questions, so please come back to the Moms Panel. We're always happy to assist. 

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.
