    Hi we’re planning on visiting December 2022, do you allow early check in?

    Hi Wendy! Welcome to planDisney. We’re so happy to see you!

    The countdown to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is finally on! Can you believe that you will be in the middle of Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary Celebration in just a few short weeks? How exciting is that?! I just know you’ll love every second of this special celebration. But, if you ask me, nothing tops the stunning Beacons of Magic at all four theme parks. You've never seen the theme park icons quite like this, transformed into a glimmering EARidescent rainbow of colors and magic. I'll tell you; they really took my breath away!

    Wendy, I’m so happy to hear you’ll be staying at a Disney Resort Collection hotel during your vacation. What an incredible way to immerse yourself in the magic from the moment you arrive! Now, there is no official early check-in available, but you can absolutely call Guest Services to submit your request, and they will put it on file for you. Of course, there is no guarantee that they will be able to honor your request, but it doesn’t hurt to try! You can call them at (407) 939-1936.

    You might also want to utilize the awesome Direct-To-Room service available to you as a Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guest. Direct-To-Room service makes check-in a breeze, allowing you to skip the front desk line altogether by checking in via your My Disney Experience app! This way, if you arrive before your room is ready, you can drop your bags at Bell Services and head out for your day of fun. All you'll need to do is log into your account, open up the menu by clicking the horizontal lines on the bottom right corner, and select "Resort Hotel." From there, follow the prompts to complete your online check-in, and when your room is ready, you will get a notification on your phone with your room number and can head straight up whenever you are ready! You can even put in your estimated arrival time, so the resort will know when you plan to get there.

    Wendy, I just know you will have such a magical vacation with your family! If you have any other questions as you continue to finalize your plans, please don't hesitate to visit us again! We love to help our fellow Guests make the most of their vacation plans!

    Bye for now,
