    Hi Sharon,

    "Check in" time is just the time when Disney will guarantee that your room is ready to occupy. But you're welcome to start the fun of your vacation much earlier than that. 

    You can arrive at the hotel and register as early in the day as you like, even in the pre-dawn hours if that suits you. When you register, you will be given your Key to the World Card. This will serve as your room key when your room is ready. The KTTWC will also be loaded with any park tickets or dining plan credits you may have purchased. You can also arrange for your KTTWC to function as a charge card while you're on Disney property. Once you have your tickets, you're free to head off to the parks and enjoy everything Walt Disney World has to offer. 

    Your hotel will be happy to store your luggage for you in a secure location. They can even call or text your cell to let you know when your room is ready. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
