    How do you request an early check in? And will our magic bands be activated to use in the parks and for meals even if our room at POP is not read?

    Hi, Anthony!

    Check-in at Disney's Pop Century Resort hotel is at 3pm. With your My Disney Experience account, you can use online check-in and edit your room requests and select to request a early check-in. You can also call 407-939-1936 and inform the Cast Member of your early check-in request.  This will not guarantee that you will be able to get a room before 3:00pm, but it does alert Cast Members that you would like a room as soon as one is available. 
    Your theme park tickets and dining plan are available to use on the first day of your Disney vacation, even if your room is not ready when you arrive. While Cast Members prepare your room at the resort, enjoy the parks or Disney Springs by using your Magic Band to unlock the fun and magic that awaits!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy planning!
