    I'm going to be arriving by car at Pop Century around midnight for my trip in March. I've done the online check in through the app. Will this be a problem?

    Hey there, Stephanie. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I too will be visiting Walt Disney World in early March. It's such a nice time of year to go. The crowds can be relatively low and the weather is just perfect. I know you are going to have a great time! 

    Driving to Walt Disney World is something I know a thing or two about, Stephanie. Typically I drive down from NC about once a month to visit the most magical place on earth. Did you know that as a resort Guest, if you choose to drive yourself to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks you'll be able to park your car for free? It's such a great perk! I always like to pack a little cooler of drinks to keep in the car. It's so refreshing to have a cold water waiting for you after a long day in the parks.

    When you checked in online via the app, did you specify what time you would be arriving? If not, log back into your account and modify your online check-in to reflect the late arrival time.  I don't foresee any problems once you arrive. As a resort Guest, you won't even need to stop at the guard shack before continuing on to your room. Your MagicBand will open the gate to let you through. When your room is ready, on the day of your arrival, you will receive a text message with your room number and directions on how to locate it. There will be no need to stop by the front desk once you arrive, no matter the time. If you are still a little nervous about how late it will be, give Guest Services a call. It can be reassuring to speak to someone in person and they will be able to make a note of your arrival time on your account. Guest Services can be reached by calling (407) 938-4000. 

    I think you are going to have so much fun staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort. I love all of the larger-than-life memorabilia that decks this resort out. It's a really fun trip down memory lane. Something I also love about staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort is the addition of the Disney Skyliner. The Disney Skyliner connects Disney's Pop Century Resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot via a highway in the sky. It's really convenient and a fun view of Walt Disney World property. 

    I hope this helps ease your mind about your late arrival, Stephanie. If you have any other questions before your trip, please do come back and ask. 

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
