    My family will be going to WDW in May and starting our stay@ the Contemporary on Sat. Can we go ahead and get our tickets and park at the Contemporary on Sat. morning? We are going to EPCOT on Sat. Also, what time can we check into our room?

    Yes, go right to the Contemporary when you arrive at WDW. The official check-in time is 3:00 p.m. But you are welcome to go to your hotel as early in the morning as you like to preregister and get your tickets. You could get to the hotel even as early as 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. and the check-in desk will give you your Key to World cards and any theme park admission tickets or Dining Plan credits you've purchased. When you preregister at the hotel, they will also give you a parking pass to put on the dash board of your car. This pass will allow you to park at hotel and the theme parks for free for the duration of your trip.

    You should know that if you go to the hotel first thing in the morning it is quite unlikely that your room will actually be ready. If it is not ready, you can leave your luggage with the bell services desk at the hotel and they will store it in a secure area for you. Then you can go off and enjoy the parks and return later in the day when your room is available.

    Have a great trip!
