    Help! 180 day mark is Sunday and we were hoping to get ADR for Crystal Palace around 8:00 am on our arrival day. How early can you check in to the resort? We checked in last year at 7:00. Can we check in earlier? Would we have enough time?

    Hi Brandi,

    You are welcome to check in as early as you want in the morning, just know that your room is not guaranteed to be ready until after 3:00 p.m. You can simply explain that you are wanting to get your Disney Dining Plan credits and park passes so you can catch an early breakfast reservation. You'll be able to store your bags with Bell Services and pick up your Magic Bands / Key to the World Cards with your Disney Dining Plan credits on them. At that point, you can hop on one of the early buses which are specifically for guests with Advanced Dining Reservations. You'll want to shoot to be at the Magic Kingdom by 7:40 a.m.. This way you can enjoy a leisurely stroll down Main Street, USA on your way to Crystal Palace. The park will be relatively empty and you'll be able to get some great shots of Cinderella Castle on your way to breakfast.

    I hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation,
