    Hi Leonard! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    A cruise in the fall and an overnight stay at the Walt Disney World Resort sure sounds magical! I always tell guests that I think it is a great idea to fly in a day before your cruise is scheduled to depart. You never know if there will be a weather or mechanical delay so allotting yourself extra time is always a wise idea! When travel works out perfectly that just means more time to splash around in the pool!

    Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resort are eligible to take advantage of online Check-In. Online Check-In can be completed right in your home within 60 days of your arrival. It may even reduce your registration time once you arrive to start your Unforgettable vacation. If you haven’t checked in online before your arrival it is ok! You can head right to the front desk upon arrival to your Resort hotel and start the process. If your room isn’t ready you can leave them a telephone number and they will text you when your room is available for use! You are able to start using all of the amenities including the pools, arcades (if available), food courts, shopping, and more as soon as you arrive!

    I hope that you and your family have a magical time!
