    Can you park at hotel before check in time and catch the bus to the parks then check in when you come back?

    Hi Laurie! How excited are you knowing your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins tomorrow?

    Great news! You absolutely can park at your Resort hotel prior to your room being ready on your arrival date. You can enjoy Disney transportation and other Resort hotel amenities. I love how you are planning to maximize every magical moment!

    If you have not already done so, be sure to take advantage of online check-in. Guests can complete their online check-in up until the day before they arrive.  For you, today is the day! Online check-in is the greatest! It's also very easy to do. Simply sign in to your My Disney Experience account. You will see your upcoming reservation. Click to check-in online. Here, you can typically customize your MagicBand. Because you are arriving tomorrow, if you have not already customized your MagicBand, you will pick it up at check-in. If you have not yet linked your hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account, you will need to do that first. Your My Disney Experience account will easily walk you through the online check-in process. You will enter information including preferred mode of message delivery during your vacation, credit card information, Resort hotel arrival time, room location requests, account PIN (to be used for room charges), and your address. Once you have confirmed the information and agree to the terms and conditions, you will be checked in on-line.

    When you arrive at your Resort hotel, if you have your MagicBand, you can skip the front desk and head straight to your room. Once your room is available, if you would like, you can unlock your door with your My Disney Experience App and your mobile phone. Even though you can skip the front desk, I always like to stop by and pick up my Welcome Packet.

    I know you are going to have a wonderful vacation! Enjoy every magical moment!!!
