    Can i use early access to parks before resort check-in time

    Hiya Jim! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Oh boy! Only one more sleep until you arrive for your magical Disney vacation! Being a Florida resident, I'm sure you are just a hop, skip, and jump away from all of the fun! Let's dive right into your question to get you ready for your stay.

    I have great news for you, Jim! Early Theme Park Entry is available on both your check-in and check-out days! You'll be able to take advantage of this amazing perk on the day of your arrival. You can either stop by your resort in the morning and utilize Disney Transportation to the parks or head straight there. Early entry allows Guests to enter the park 30 minutes before the official park opening time. You can utilize this extra time to hop in line for one of the popular attractions or try to fit in a couple of rides with minimal wait times. My wife enjoys using this time to take pictures in areas of the park that are normally crowded. We have some of our best family photos walking through the World Showcase in EPCOT with barely any Guests in the background.

    Being a Disney Resorts Hotel Guest, you'll also be able to make Individual Lightning Lane purchases starting at 7 AM each day of your stay. Guests staying offsite are not allowed to make selections until the official park opening time. As you are arriving, you can hop on your My Disney Experience App and book an Individual Lightning Lane to get a head start on the rest of the Guests visiting that day.

    Jim, I hope you have a magical visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
