    Hello we are staying at animal kingdom and want to take advantage of the early morning hours. Our last day visiting the parks is also one of the days we check out. Can we utilize our resort ID on our checkout day?

    Hi there, Clay!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your fantastic question. I can't wait for your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, my absolute favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    This exquisitely detailed resort offers so many more experiences and activities than your average hotel. With savannas on property, educational and cultural experiences, magnificent dining options, unique recreational activities, and one of the most impressive lobbies and pool areas, I have actually spent some short trips here without even visiting the theme parks!

    I'm delighted to inform you that you are most-definitely allowed to utilize your hotel benefits on your day of check out, including your Extra Magic Hour in the parks that day. You are also more than welcome to use the hotel's amenities including the pool and fitness center after you check out until the end of the day. On multiple occasions we have decided to enjoy some pool time after we have checked out. There is even a convenient restroom located adjacent to the pool that Guests may use to shower and change after they have checked out that day. It's such a great perk that allows us to freshen up before we have to hit the road.

    During your stay make sure you take time to soak up the atmosphere of this amazing resort. I have stayed here numerous times and always find new details that add to its theme. You will also find some of the most friendly Cast Members here that are so proud to talk to you about their culture and customs from Africa.

    Have a wonderful stay and Hakuna Matata!
