    We have park tickets and reservations for June, arriving Monday morning and staying at the Polynesian Bungalows and Villas. Since check-in isn't until 4:00, where is the best place for us to park when we arrive at the park Monday morning?

    Hi Aubrey,

    You must be so excited for your upcoming stay at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, which just happens to be my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resort! To my mind, there is nothing not to love about this tropical South Pacific island themed Resort, complete with white sandy beaches, swaying palm tress, and exotic Tiki torches. Best of all are the gorgeous views of Cinderella Castle and close proximity to Magic Kingdom, just a short boat ride or monorail away!

    Aubrey, while official check-in time at the Resort is after 4 p.m., this simply relates to the time when you can normally expect your room to be ready. In fact, you are more than welcome to check into the Resort earlier that morning. As soon as your room is ready, just like traveling pixie dust, you can opt to receive a text message with your room number. You will also be welcome to park your car at the Resort for the day. In fact, I highly encourage you to do so, and to then simply take Disney's complimentary transportation (monorail, water taxi or bus) from the Polynesian Village Resort to any of the four Disney Theme Parks. Bell Services will also be pleased to hold any luggage for the day until your room is ready if you prefer not to leave it in your vehicle.

    Aubrey, your upcoming June vacation is timed perfectly for the upcoming opening on May 27 of Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. In fact, you will be among some of the first guests to explore this incredible new land of floating mountains and bioluminescent plants for yourself!

    Wishing you a most magical upcoming stay at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows!
