    Can we park at our Disney Resort on our day of arrival, at 8:00AM, and take the shuttle to the Theme Parks, even though we do not get our room until 3 PM that day? We did do online check-in.

    Hello, Dorothy. It's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney! 

    Your Magical vacation is getting so close. I hope your excitement is growing faster than you can say Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! 

    Dorothy, one of my favorite perks of staying onsite at a Disney Resort Hotel is the ability to leave my keys in my suitcase and let Mickey take care of the driving. I'm happy to report that you are able to park and hop aboard a bus from your resort to the parks early on your check-in day. You can even leave your bags with Bell Services to make getting to your room at the end of the day quick and easy. Since you have already completed Online Check-In, you will receive a notification when your room is ready.  While not necessary, you may want to still stop by the Front Desk to grab a resort map and check the resort activities calendar. 

    Dorothy, I hope this helps as you're planning out your first park day. If you have any other questions, my fellow planDisney panelists and I would be happy to see you here again. 

    Have a pixie-dusted stay,
