    We are staying at Art of Animation in a couple of weeks. We are arriving early, before check in, and plan to hit a park and spend the day. Are we able to park at the resort before check in?

    Hi Jamie!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    This sounds like my kind of plan!  We like to hit the ground running when we arrive on Walt Disney World Resort property, as well.

    You can certainly go ahead and park at Disney's Art of Animation Resort upon your arrival. You can also take your luggage in to leave with Bell Services if you prefer not to leave it in your vehicle. They can hold it there for you until you return from your fun-filled day at the parks.  Then, from your resort, you can hop on one of the Walt Disney World Transportation buses that will whisk you away to whatever park you choose for the day! 

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before you arrive. It's truly a one-stop shop for planning your trip and finding updated schedule and attraction wait-time information.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your vacation.
