    If we have a resort reservation for contemporary resort, can we arrive early, park, and go to magic kingdom and check in during afternoon break or do we need to check in and get parking pass when we arrive in morning? Wanting to get to MK right away!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Melanie. It is a great one!

    Yes, you are able to park at your Resort Hotel and head to the Magic Kingdom no matter what time you arrive on your check-in day. Simply stop by the Front Desk to pick up your Theme Park Tickets if you have purchased a Magic Your Way package. If you would like to take a break and come back to the Contemporary Hotel at check-in time you can certainly do so. But you might consider online check-in if you don't want to interrupt the fun and leave the Park. Just ask a Cast Member at the Front Desk for your check-in packet when you do return and you will be all ready to go!

    Please let us know if we can help you with any other planning or vacation tips. Here's wishing you a vacation filled will many magical memories!
