    Our flight arrives very early in the morning. Our plan was to visit a park that day since we cant check into the hotel until 3 pm. Will our tickets be valid that day before we officially check in?

    Hello there, Kelly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your visit to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    As someone that can hardly way to experience the magic of Walt Disney World Resort, I always book early flights whenever we fly into MCO! I love getting to our Disney Resort hotel early and having the entire rest of our day to begin our vacation!

    You are most certainly welcome to use your theme park tickets prior to officially checking into your Disney Resort hotel room. My family and I have done this exact thing on numerous occasions! If you have used Disney's Magical Express, you can actually have your checked luggage delivered right to your room. In addition, any bags that you've carried on can be left with Bell Services at your Disney Resort hotel. This makes visiting the theme parks much easier! 

    I would also recommend planning a meal once you've arrived to Walt Disney World Resort! My family and I have a tradition of grabbing breakfast at Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort on our day of arrival. There's something so relaxing about enjoying a nice cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast before beginning all of our vacation adventures!

    I hope you and your family have a practically perfect visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to let us know if we can assist you in planning any other part of your vacation!
