    Nov 2016, flying red-eye from west coast, have a recommendation of what 2 do in case can't get into hotel room (worried will be tired)? Also purchasing annual pass, but want 2 get hotel reserved first. Can I call hotel 2 get pass discounts w/o pass?

    Hi, Melinda!
    I'm excited for your big trip to Walt Disney World Resort. I recently activated my first Annual Pass, so I know what a big deal it is!

    I purchased my Annual Pass before I visited arrived on the resort property and was able to start booking rooms with the Annual Pass discounts before I activated the pass. I'd recommend making the purchase before you reserve your hotel rooms. You can take advantage of the Annual Pass discounts before you activate them.

    With the red eye, call your resort ahead of time and let them know you are arriving early. There's no guarantee, but you can try to get into a room early once you arrive. If not, bring a few items to clean up and take a little time to relax by the pool. (Napping is totally okay in a lounge chair!) You can use the pool bathroom to clean up.

    I hope you can book the perfect resort! Let me know if I can help with any other questions before you arrive!
