    Hi Parent Panel! My family and I are staying at Caribbean Resort in July and we're driving there from Southern Florida. If we arrive before check-in, (around 10 AM), will we be able to use the pool and restaurants at the resort?

    Hi Kimberly, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! Don’t worry, they’ll be ready and waiting for you at Disney’s Carribbean Beach Resort in July, no matter what time you and your family arrive!

    We normally fly to Walt Disney World Resort and our flights often arrive well before the official check-in time. While our room has very rarely been ready the moment we arrive (especially during busier times of year, like the month of July), that hasn’t ever put a damper on our fun! We’ve typically been able to use all of our Walt Disney World Resort hotel’s amenities, including its pool, restaurants and other recreational activities the moment we arrived at Walt Disney World Resort. We’ve even had our Resort store our luggage while we headed straight off to the Theme Parks in order to capture every ounce of pixie dust we could find! 

    One tip that I’ve found really useful for my family: make sure to do Online Resort Check-In and to note your early arrival on that form. If you make any room requests, tick off the box that says that you’d rather have a room available early, regardless of whether it satisfies the other requests you’ve made (such as choice of building, floor and other location-based criteria).

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
