    Hi! My family and I will be traveling 13 hours overnight to Disney. We will arrive around 7AM to start our vacation. Is there anywhere within Disney we can freshen up before heading to the parks, as our hotel check-in is not until 4PM that afternoon?

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carmelita!

    Even though your resort check-in time is not until 4pm,  you can check-in as soon as you arrive.  Your room may not be ready,  but you are free to use all of the facilities at the resort.  This includes restrooms, pool area, pool area showers, etc.  You can also have the folks at Bell Services store your bags while you go out to play in the parks.  When you return to your resort, just stop by or call Bell Services to have your bags delivered to your newly assigned room.  It's that simple!  

    Please let me know if I can help answer any other trip planning questions.  

    Until then, I wish you a magical vacation!
