    Q from CO Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My plane arrives at 5am to Orlando on Wed. Can I get my hotel room on tues. night, would I be able to arrive at the resort and go straight to my hotel? We’re traveling with small children and want them to be able to sleep before the park opens?

    Hi Q, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It looks like you have a solid plan to give the kids some rest before hitting the Theme Parks!

    By making a reservation that starts on Tuesday and an online check in, you will be able to go straight to your room on Wednesday morning. You will even be able to unlock your door using you MagicBand! To do that, just download the My Disney Experience App and link your hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account. After that, the option to make an online check in will be offered under the "My Plans" tab. Just tap "Start Check-In" and follow the steps to be ready to go!

    You can also turn the ride from the Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort into a rest opportunity by using Disney's Magical Express, a complimentary service offered to Guests staying at the Disney Hotels. A Cast Member will drive you and your family safely to your Disney Hotel while you all enjoy a nice nap on the bus. Doesn't that sound amazing?

    You can also have groceries delivered to your Disney Hotel by Garden Grocer, as it can be a life saver for those who like to have breakfast in their rooms before heading to the Theme Parks. If you'd rather buy something at the hotel, though, you will surely find tasty options to keep the family fed and happy.

    If you want to run any more plans through the Disney Parks Moms Panel before your trip, please, stop by, Q! We love to share experiences and feedbacks - especially with Guests who already bring such great ideas to the Panel. Well done!

    May the magic be with you,
