    What is the latest possible check-in time?

    Hi, Heather!

    Thanks so much for sending your question to us at Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    When my family and I visit Walt Disney World, we often fly down from Pennsylvania late at night, leaving after the end of a school day. As such, we've checked into our Walt Disney World Resort hotel as late as after midnight, and we have never had a problem with such a late check-in.

    Be sure that you have let your Walt Disney World Resort hotel know of your late arrival. You can do so via online check-in or by calling the phone number on your Resort hotel's homepage. While there should be no problem, I always like to inform a Cast Member that we'll be getting in late.

    If you'd like to pack as many pixie-dusted hours into your trip and linger longer in the parks on the day of checkout, Heather, you can just drop your bags at your Resort hotel's Bell Services. They will be happy to tag and store your bags while you head back to the parks for more fun prior to departure. 

    Happy planning! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
