    Next trip is 2012, driving down & will be arriving early morning (8-9am). Is it possible to use our points to book a room the night we drive, but not check in until that time? Just trying to have a place to crash earlier than check in time on that da

    Hi Desiree,

    I like the way you are thinking! While there is always a chance a room might be available when you arrive, you definitely want to be able to hang your mouse ears somewhere to crash when you arrive.

    When you make your reservation for your vacation, simply book the night before you arrive. Have Member Services put a note on the reservation you will be arriving for a late check in which is really the next day. I would then take the number of the resort you will be staying at and call them the day of your "arrival" and tell them you will be arriving early the next day and not to release your room.

    This way you can shower or take a nap prior to heading out to the parks to tour.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
