    Hi there, so I’m planning this trip but the plane won’t arrive in Orlando until 12:44am. I’m just wondering if I would be able to check into the resort that early in the morning? And when checking out how early can I do that?

    Hi again, Joshua!
    Welcome back to planDisney.

    The good news is that from the minute you step inside Walt Disney World Resort, there are services available to make your stay comfortable and efficient.  With such an early flight arrival time I would recommend you use Online check-in.  You can do this in advance by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  If you would like to have your luggage stored securely until your room is ready, Bell Services will do that for you, and are normally available any time of day, but if not, the Front Desk of your hotel is open 24 hours a day, and can deal with your luggage storage for you.  

    Normal check-in time is 3.00 pm (4.00 pm for Disney Vacation Club reservations) so you might have several hours to wait until you can access your room - unless your reservation begins the day before your flight lands at 12.44 am, in which case it will be ready for you when you arrive.  

    When you are ready to check out, you can also do that on your My Disney Experience app - whatever time of day that is.  The usual check-out time is 11.00 am so you can leave your luggage with Bell Services again if your flight is later in the day and you wish to visit the parks on your last day.  You are also welcome to use all the hotel facilities, such as the pool, on the date you check out. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your visit.
