    We have a VERY early flight the day we get in and have Mickey's NSSHP that evening. We have a toddler and were hoping to get in Art of Animation room around 1 so she can get a nap and we can get our costumes on. Do they have call-ahead to request this?

    Howdy, Cortney!

    Thanks for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Early arrivals are the best start to a Disney vacation!

    Online resort check-in can allow you to select to have your room ready as soon as possible instead of waiting on the standard 3pm check-in time. 

    Log into your My Disney Experience account, click on Start Check-in. Next, you will select Show Details which will open up the available options to edit. Select Room Location Request and click on box next to Arriving Early. This will notify the Cast Members at your resort that you want to have your resort room ready as soon as possible so that you can relax in your room and lay your sweet little one down for an afternoon nap. 

    You can also call 407-939-1936, speak with a Cast Member and ask them to place a request on your reservation to have your resort ready as soon as possible! 

    Cortney, don't forget to pack your treat bag along with your costume for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Those candy trails are loaded with some of the best treats!

    Enjoy your stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! Keep your ears open to hear those pesky seagulls from atop the Finding Nemo buildings.
