    Hi, we are staying for one night at Caribbean Beach and on the day of check in (3pm) there are magic hours at 8am in Animal Kingdom. Can we check in online and still use these magic hours before we get to our hotel room? Thanks in advance Emma (UK)

    Hello there, Emma! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and ask you wonderful Walt Disney World Resort question!

    You and your family definitively picked an excellent Disney Resort hotel for your summer vacation! Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a tropical paradise in the middle of Orlando, Florida! The relaxing island theme can be felt from the sandy beaches all the way to the delicious Caribbean dining locations

    You will be happy to hear that you can definitively sneak off to Disney's Animal Kingdom for Extra Magic Hours on your arrival day! Extra Magic Hours are available to all Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels and, since you will be checking in later in the day, you and your family are entitled to this exclusive perk! I would highly recommend you take advantage of the early morning Extra Magic Hours and stop by Kilimanjaro Safaris. I've found that experiencing this attraction earlier in the day can lead to some very interesting animal experiences!

    If you need to store your luggage prior to beginning your day in the parks, you can do so by stopping by Bell Services at your Disney Resort hotel. Bell Services will hold your items for you until you are ready to claim them later in the day which makes exploring the parks much easier prior to your official check-in time!

    Have fun continuing to plan for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort!
