    Q1: Will do online check-in w/ tickets linked; can I arrive super early at the hotel, get the wristbands and go to the parks, even if room is not ready? How long could check-in take in this case? Q2: Can I use only return Magical Express for a 23pm flight?

    Hi Andrea,

    One of the things I love about vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resorts is the ability to start the fun as soon as you arrive. Completing the online check-in will definitely speed things up!

    When you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort, you can ask if your room is ready if it is prior to the official check-in time. If it is, you can move your bags to your room if you wish. If the room is not ready, you can give it to Bell Services who will hold it until you return.

    You can then grab your MagicBands and head straight to the park.

    As for Disney's Magical Express, you can choose to use it or not. This is a great feature because you do not have to worry about renting a car and you can relax on your way to and from the airport.

    Wishing you a magical day!
