    Hi this is our first trip to Disney World and I have a question regarding the day of arrival. Based on the information online check-in time for the resort is 3pm. Do we have access to the parks before check in time?

    Hi Jasmine! 

    Yes, you can absolutely visit the parks prior to your check-in. I recommend that you visit your resort first, check-in and see if your room is available when you arrive. It it's not yet available, you can leave your bags with Bell Services and get your tickets to the park.

    You can enjoy the day in the park and then head back to your room that evening. You can have bell services bring up your luggage when you arrive.
