    My family are planning our first vacation to Pop Century in August. I know that official check in is not until 3PM but can we check in and go to a park earlier in the day? We will be driving in so we can always leave our luggage in the car.

    Hi Jasminn! You're going to love staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort! Be sure to try to the tie-dyed cheesecake at the Everything Pop food court. YUMMY!

    You are welcome to check-in at your resort any time during your arrival day and you can even have your luggage stored until your guest room is ready! Simply provide your cell phone number to the cast member for notification when your room is available and complete the registration requirements. You'll be on your way to enjoying the theme parks hassle-free!

    You may wish to consider pre-registration via online check-in for an even faster process. Upon arrival there will be signage in the resort lobby indicating where the online check-in desk area is located.

    While there aren't any guarantees that your room will be ready if you check-in prior to 3pm, cast members will certainly try to locate an available room no matter when you arrive.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions our way in the days leading up to your trip! May your Disney vacation be practically perfect in every way!
