    When and how will I know if my early check-in at Art of Animation resort Orlando has been granted.

    Hi Barbara!

    I think that requesting early check-in is the highlight of the Walt Disney World Resort planning phase!

    Though early check-in requests are not guaranteed, it doesn't hurt to include the request because, in my experience, my requests have been granted on multiple occasions. Once your room is ready at Disney's Art of Animation Resort (the day of your arrival), you will receive an email and (if you provided your cell number) a text letting you know that your room is ready. If for some reason, you do not receive the early-check-in notice, you can always drop your luggage off at your resort and enjoy the pool or head over to the theme park of your choice to begin your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    Have a magical stay!
