    If I'm a resort guest and want to drive and park at Epcot my day of arrival before my room is ready, do I need to stop by the hotel and get a resort guest parking pass or can I scan my magic band at the entrance?

    Hello Krista!
    Wow, that is so exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up soon! Based on my experience, I would definitely recommend stopping by your Walt Disney World Resort to check in and get your parking pass before you head to Epcot on your arrival day. You can check in even before your room is ready and you can get a text or email when your room is ready if you sign up for this notification when you check in. Often when I check in early to my Walt Disney World Resort, my room is ready faster than the normal 3:00 pm time. With the Walt Disney World Resort parking pass you will be able to park for free at any of the four theme parks. I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
