    I am driving form Central Texas and I will probibly arrive in the morning. Can I check in at The Boardwalk Villas in the moirning? f not, can I park my car at the resort and go to the parks? I have been to WDW many times, but I have never stayed in the BW

    Hi Jessica,

    Yes, you can absolutely check into the Boardwalk (or any other Disney property) whenever you arrive.  While your room may not be available until later in the afternoon (at regular check-in times), you can drop off your bags, get your information folder loaded with important information about the parks, up-to-the-minute happenings at your resort and other tidbits to help you enjoy your stay, and then head to the parks.  If you'd like, you can ask the Cast Member who assists you at the front desk for a  number to call to see when your room is ready. 

    When you return back to the resort (after check-in time), you can call the valet for the bags you may have checked upon arrival, and they will be delivered to your room.

    The Boardwalk is a beautiful resort.  If you are tired of sitting after your long drive, you might love to walk over to Epcot or Hollywood Studios to start your trip!

    Have a great time!
