    In May we are staying at the Grand Floridan. I noticed on our reservation that check in is after 3pm. I typically stay at DVC properties on points or cash and thought check in is after 4pm. Thanks Peggy B

    Hello Peggy,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so glad that you come back to see us.

    You are correct on both counts. The Deluxe Villas that are part of the Disney Vacation Club collection do have a check-in time of 4:00 pm. However, the other Walt Disney World Resort hotels, including Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, have a check-in time of 3:00 pm. 

    Make sure and sign-up for Online Check-in before your departure date. You will then receive a text message when your room is ready. The text will include your room number, and if you have received your MagicBands you can buy pass the registration desk!

    See ya real soon,
