    We will be driving in and staying at the campgrounds. We will likely not arrive until late evening, how late can we check in?

    Hello, Daniel!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are DELIGHTED to answer your question and help you plan your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! We KNOW you are going to have the most MAGICAL time!

    I have to begin by telling you that my all-time "Home Away From Home" Disney Resort is most definitely Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort! It's just so nice to come back and enjoy the peace and serenity of the outdoors after experiencing a TIGGER-ific day in one of the Disney Parks.

    Now, are you ready for some INCREDIBLE news?! I am very excited to let you know that Disney Resort Check-in begins at 3:00 p.m., so ANYTIME after 3:00 p.m. is practically perfect in every way! That means you can arrive at the wee hours of the morning and still be able to check-in! 

    My recommendation would be to take advantage of Disney's Online Resort Check-in and let Mickey Mouse know when you are going to arrive. That way Mickey Mouse can make sure a Cast Member is ready for you when you check-in. NOTE: My family had to arrive late to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort three years ago, and we did not have any issue!

    If you have other questions, please let me know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
