    A quick question... since check-in is after 3pm and we have park tickets for that day. Do we just use our magic-bands and go to a park and check-in later. Or do we go to the resort first? Want to do something before 3pm!

    Hi there, Garrett!

    Thanks for visiting us here at the DIsney Parks Moms Panel with your question today!  We are all so happy to help.  

    I always recommend that guests check-in immediately upon arrival at your Walt DIsney World Resort.  If your room is ready, you can get settled and go.  If your room is not ready, store your bags with Bell Services and explore the parks.  You can choose to receive a call or text message when your room becomes available.  This way, you can choose to come back to your resort whenever it's convenient for YOU.  

    Have a great time.  I wish you a truly magical vacation!
