    Hi, I recently booked to stay at Animal Kingdom's Lodge on next March. We arrive at 4:44am, I was wondering if I can ask in advanced to my arrival for an early check in and also a late check out, since the day we are leaving is a late night flight.

    Hi there, Xiomara!

    Your exciting vacation to Walt Disney World is just around the corner, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a breathtaking choice of resort.  Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 11am.  The only way to guarantee such an early arrival would be to book the extra night before your current check-in date.  Unfortunately, there is no other way to guarantee a room so early.  You are able to make requests, but they are simply just that - requests.  Disney always does its best to honor requests, but they are never guaranteed.  Keep in mind that it is likely that a room would not be available that early as current guests will not have to check-out until 11am.  On your check-out day, you are welcome to utilize the amenities of Animal Kingdom Lodge until you have to leave for your flight.  Upon check-out, simply store your bags with Bell Services.  Again, you are welcome to request a late check-out, but no guarantees.  I hope this helps.  Feel free to stop back with any additional questions, Xiomara!

    Magically yours in 2018,
