    Are resorts pretty good about accommodating early check-ins? I'm concerned about coordinating naps times on our day of arrival and not being able to check in until 1500.

    Howdy Liz!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, a group of the rootinest tootinest Disney vacation enthusiasts you ever will meet! It sounds like you are ready to blast off to infinity and beyond with your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort! I am so glad that you decided to stop by with your vacation question. It would be my pleasure to round up an answer about early check-ins when staying in a Disney Resort hotel.

    Disney Resort hotel check-in time is 3:00 p.m. With the new health and safety measures throughout Walt Disney World Resort, I have found early check-in has been challenging to accommodate. During my most recent stays, my resort room was available either right at or a little after 3:00 p.m. I highly recommend planning not to have access to your Disney Resort hotel room until the 3:00 p.m. check-in time. Upon arrival at your resort, you can speak with the Front Desk Cast Member to see if your resort room can be available earlier. You may find it better to forgo any room requests to have your resort room available earlier.

    I hope you have an unforgettable vacation in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Remember, you’ve got a friend in us here at planDisney, so stop by any time we can lasso an answer to your Disney vacation questions.
