    I want to gain access to the parks prior to 3 pm check -in at my Disney Resort. Can I get it at the hotel I'm booked at the morning of arrival, and then start my parks pass?

    Hi Anthony! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It is almost time for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Yay! I bet you are busy packing for your trip.

    When you arrive for your stay at your Disney Resort hotel, go ahead and visit the Front Desk, even if it's before check-in time. Sometimes, rooms are ready prior to normal check-in time and you just might be able to check-in early, but even if your room isn't ready quite yet, the Front Desk will be able to give you any tickets that are included in your Magic Your Way package. Then you can begin enjoying your day at the theme parks!

    If your room is not available when you arrive, you can leave any suitcases and bags that you have with Bell Services. They will hold these for you until you return from the theme parks later that day to retrieve them. Each time I do this, I make sure to tip the Cast Member handling my luggage. They are always so helpful and I'm happy to show them my appreciation!

    Enjoy your trip, Anthony! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
