    This forum is a BIG help! We are staying at the Shades of Green in May & check-in is 3pm. Is there early check-in there? We would like to arrive early & spend the day in Downtown Disney. We have reservation at T-Rex Cafe at 5:30pm.Thks

    Hi Sidney,

    A day in Downtown Disney followed by dinner at T-Rex sounds like a great way to start your Disney vacation!

    If your room is ready before 3 p.m., you will certainly be allowed to check in.  If you arrive before your room is available, you will still be able to get your resort charge card and leave your luggage with bell services.  They will deliver it to your room once it is ready, and you can pick up your resort key when you return for the evening.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
