    I’m planning a trip in December for 6 people. We will either stay at All Stars Music or Movies. Since we will be at a park the same day as our check in, do we still get the extra 30m the first day? And can we leave our bags at the hotel and use their bus?

    Hi there, Grace!

    Welcome to planDisney!  How exciting that you are planning an upcoming vacation at one of Disney's All-Star Resorts.  I just stayed in Disney's All-Star Music Resort and you will love these fantastic properties that will make you feel like a rock star at Disney. 

    Grace, you most certainly can take advantage of early theme park entry on the day of your check-in. Just make sure that your Resort is linked to your My Disney Experience account.

    Did you know that you can actually check in in advance on the My Disney Experience app?  Even though your room won't likely be ready prior to 3:00 p.m., you can check in days before your arrival day and will receive a push notification or a text when your room is ready. It saves a step on arrival day and you can go directly to your room once it's ready.  If you like, you should also be able to drop your bags with Bell Services at your Resort, so once your room is ready, you can go directly to your room and simply call Bell Services for your bags to be delivered to your room. To check in prior to your visit, go to your My Disney Experience app and click on your Resort reservation. You should see a "check-in" link and just follow the steps, and then with a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, check-in will be done for you.

    Once you drop off your bags, Grace, you are most certainly welcome to get in line for the complimentary resort transportation to the theme parks.  As the buses come every so often (sometimes 15-30 minutes apart,) I would suggest getting to the Resort early on check-in day so you have time to drop your bags and take the transport to your first theme park to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry.

    I hope this helps you, Grace. If you have any further questions, race back here to see me and I'll be so happy to help you.

    See ya real soon!
