    Our flight lands at Orlando very early which means we will be arriving at our resort Saratoga springs probably around 7am. I know check in is 3pm however do the resorts give you the option of paying to have early check in? And also later checkout as well?

    Hey Kerry-anne!

    We've often arrived well before the official check-in time.  An option to pay for early check-in is not currently available.  However, you can check-in to the resort when you arrive at 7am.  Sometimes a room will be ready and sometimes they are not.  If a room is not ready, you can store your luggage with Bell Services and someone from the resort can contact you once your room is available.  You'll be given your Key to the World Card at check-in, which will allow you to head into the parks or begin using your Disney Dining Plan credits (if applicable).  In other words, you can head straight into enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World Resort as soon as you arrive!

    Late check-out is available on a as-available basis.  Simply contact the housekeeping department on the night prior to check-out to see if you can extend your time on your final morning.  You will not be charged for a late check-out if it is available.

    I hope this helps, Kerry-anne.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
