    Hi Panel, Just notified of an earlier (by 3hrs!) flight change. Any chance of getting into one of our rooms @ Movies w/a toddler for our 1st nite and then onto BC for our Land&SEA... we have adjoining rooms requested at both resorts. Thanks!

    Getting in to your room prior to official check-in time will depend on the resort's occupancy rates during your stay. Typically we've had very good luck in getting in to resorts early in January.
    I remember a vacation where we were in our Port Orleans French Quarter room by 10 a.m. And once we were in our Caribbean Beach Resort by 9:30 a.m. However, we've had vacations where we had to wait until 3 p.m. for access to our room as well.

    Certainly mention your desire to get in to your room early to the Cast Member at Check-In. They will try to accommodate your request, although it is not guaranteed.

    Make sure to pack any items that you may need in a carry-on bag. Sometimes a refreshing swim and rest by the pool will help a family survive before their room is ready.

    Best wishes!
