    We are staying at the AKL from July 25th to the 28th. It is about a 5 hour drive, but we are leaving on the 24th and stoping at Daytona. Do you know how early we can go to AKL? We want to be able to explore the hotel and pool as soon as we can on the 25th.

    Hi Christina!

     If you suspect you might arrive earlier than your check in time (3pm), there is a chance that your room might be ready. If not, the resort still welcomes you to use their amenities, such as the pool, if you'd like. I have had luck with early check ins, as early as 8am, but it isn't guaranteed. You can also utilize online check in up to 10 days in advance of your arrival, where you can designate your expected arrival time, and perhaps this will give you a better chance of having your room ready upon arrival. Otherwise, enjoy exploring the resort at your leisure, and I'll wish for some extra pixie dust for you to have a magical vacation!
