    We are planning to go to Magic Kingdom the day we are supposed to check in to our hotel. If we do mobile check-in with our phone, are we able to go straight to the park and access the extra morning hours?

    Hiya Jen! Welcome to planDisney!

    Only a few short days away until you are standing on Main Street, U.S.A., Mickey pretzel in hand, with a full view of Cinderella Castle in front of you! This is what I envision every time leading up to our arrival day. There is nothing quite like starting your Disney vacation than at the Magic Kingdom Park! 

    Jen, great choice deciding to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel during your visit! Being able to be a part of the magic from the moment you arrive until the second you depart is what makes Walt Disney World vacations so special. The resorts add an extra layer of magical memories that will last your family a lifetime. The service is unmatched anywhere else you decide to stay and each one is themed to perfection!

    When staying in a Disney Resorts Hotel, you have full access to the benefits, amenities, and recreation offerings starting the morning of your check-in day and until the end of your check-out day. Even though the official check-in time is not until mid-afternoon, you'll still be able to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry on your first day. Make sure that your resort reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account. When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, a Cast Member will scan your MagicBand to ensure that you are an onsite Guest. It's as simple as that!

    Jen, there are a few additional perks you receive when staying in a Disney Resort Hotel. You'll have access to Disney Transportation to the parks each day and the ability to make Individual Lightning Lane reservations at 7 AM. Let's not forget the amazing amenities and recreation options available to you!

    I hope you have a magical vacation! Come back to see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
