    We're a family of seven heading to stay at Bay Lake Tower, using the DME . We'll be arriving on an early flight. Assuming we can't get an early check-in, do we have the option to go directly to one of the Theme Parks and check in later that night? Thanks.

    Hi, Tim! When you arrive on Disney's Magical Express, the first thing you will do is check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Even though it is before check-in time, you will go there to get your Key to the World (I.D.) card.  It serves as your room key, park tickets, and dining plan card, if applicable.  Disney has a wonderful service that will call or text you to let you know when your room is ready. If your room is already ready, you will find out your room location then.  If it's not ready, you will find out in your text message.  If you can't get texts, they will give you a number to call.  So get checked in, get your Key to the World cards, and let the fun begin! Have a Magical vacation!
