    Can I park at the resort early in the morning prior to check in? I want to park there before heading to Epcot in the a.m. but check in isn't until 3.

    Hiya Tom,

    I like the way you think! You aren't letting any time go to waste on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. No way. You understand when Princess Anna said, "The sky is awake, so I'm awake," and you are heading to EPCOT. I just know that you are about to have an incredible Disney vacation. 

    I'm happy to share with you that Guests of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel may park at any hour on your arrival day. Simply let the friendly Cast Member at the welcome shack in the parking lot know that you are there to check-in. They will ask for a photo ID, will quickly verify your Resort hotel reservation, will open the gate arm, and will say my favorite words, "Welcome Home!" 

    Tom, if you are excited about hassle-free Walt Disney World Resort transportation, then find the best parking spot, spray on the sunscreen, and head off for your practically perfect EPCOT day. If you would rather drive directly to EPCOT, that is also available to you! As a Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guest, standard theme park parking is also free beginning on the morning of your arrival. You can decide which option works best for you! 

    Friend, you are arriving during one of my favorite seasons at Walt Disney World Resort, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Be sure to check out the incredible topiaries, taste the best of the season  through as many outdoor kitchens as you can visit, and rock out to hit musicians with the Garden Rocks Concert Series! If you want to experience it all during your stay, this is the best time to visit! 

    I hope that helps, Tom. Let me know if you have any other questions! planDisney is here for you. 

    Adventure is out there,
