    we want to make the most of our last day and leave in the evening but since checkout at hotels is usually so early would this count as another day? and with check in if we get there in the late morning or at lunch is that too soon to check in?

    Hi Jennifer,

    We are doing the same thing on our upcoming June trip to WDW with an evening departure. If you want your room for the day, you will need to reserve that day (and pay the room rate). Otherwise, you can check-out and leave your luggage with Bell Services until the time of your departure. We have done this many times. We will check-out on our last day and then enjoy the afternoon before heading to the airport. Your resort benefits are good until midnight of the day that you check-out. This includes pool use, Disney Dining Plan credits, etc.

    Whenever you arrive Walt Disney World, go directly to your resort's Front Desk. You will be able to Check-In although if your room is not ready, you'll have to wait to get your room number. However, you can utilize the resort's amenities such as pool, food court, restaurant, shopping, etc.

     We have had to wait until after 3 p.m. to get our room assignment and we've been in our room (mostly in the off-season) by 9:00 a.m. It just depends on availability. If you are able to get in earlier that the official check-in time, you are not charged an additional fee.

    If you need any further help, just let us know!
