    I will be staying at Disney Caribbean Beach Resort in August. I saw online that check-in was at 3p.m.I will be arriving a lot sooner in Florida however. I was wondering what was the earliest they will allow me to check in without charging me something?

    Hi Brad,

    Not to worry! You can check in at your Walt Disney World resort any time on your day of arrival, even if it is early morning. You can drop your luggage, get your Key to the World Card and be off to the parks as soon as you like.

    If your room isn't ready yet, the resort will text you your room number when it is cleaned and available for you. I suggest doing online check-in, where you can record your approximate arrival time. Though it isn't guaranteed, I've found that that resort makes every effort to have your room ready when you get there.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can do anything else to clarify procedures or to make your planning easier. Enjoy your time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
