    We will be staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort on September 16-20, I was wondering if we can use the early morning extra magic hours on the day of our arrival as we will be staying in Orlando on the night before our resort check in?

    Hi Cheryl,

    Thank you for stopping by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Ready to Fall into Magic at Walt Disney World Resort?

    So many are the Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits. Among them, Extra Magic Hours, when one of the Theme Parks opens early or closes later, exclusively for Resort Hotel Guests. And even though your room may not be ready until the official Check-In time, you can always start taking advantage of these benefits as early as 6:00 a.m. of your Check-In day, and continue until midnight of your Check-Out day.

    If you can take advantage of Online Check-In, have your Theme Park Tickets and Resort Hotel reservation linked to your My Disney Experience account, you should be able to head straight to the Theme Parks early in the morning. Once your room is ready, you’ll receive a notification via text or on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Very simple!

    One last tip: if you have luggage, you may drop it off with Bell Services early in the morning, and then head straight to the Theme Parks. Then once you come back from the Theme Parks, they’ll bring it to your room. Happy planning!
