    Hi! We will be staying at Art of Animation Oct. 2013. Can we check in prior to the 3pm check in time and swim in the pool if our room is not available yet? How about eating lunch using our DDP at Landscape of Flavors Food Court? Thanks Moms!

    Hi Aleaha!

    This is a great question. No problems checking in early even if your room is not ready. You can pick up your Key to the World card with your park admission information and Disney Dining Plan credits. You can leave your luggage with Bell Services and play, including playing in the parks. Just return when your room is ready and have Bell Services deliver your luggage to the room. The good court at the Art of Animation is the best at any resort so enjoy!

    Please write back with more questions.
