    Hi! We are staying at the Grand Floridian over Labor Day. 1st adult only trip! Can we arrive at 8am day of check-in, park, and utilize the monorail to enter MK before our official check-in at 3?

    Hi there, Robert!

    What a great question.  I am happy to say that, YES, you can absolutely do that!  

    Your magical vacation will be here before you know it, and what better way to get things started than to arrive early and get the party started! Once you arrive at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa you are welcome to check you bags with Bell Services.  When your room is ready you can either retrieve the bags yourselves or touch the Bell Services button on your in-room phone to have your luggage delivered to you.  

    After you have stored your luggage, head on over to the Front Desk for check-in.  Your vacation begins then and you are welcome to utilize the amenities of the resort as well as start enjoying the parks.  Furthermore, you can choose to receive a call or text to let you know when your room is ready.  Since you have already completed the check-in process, you can do directly to your room without having to stop back at the lobby.  Enjoy!

    Magically yours in 2018,
