    Hello Nissa-Alexandra! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    How exciting that you get a few days to enjoy Walt Disney World before experiencing the Disney College Program. A few of the Disney Parks Moms are former Disney College Program members and speak very highly of the experience.

    The good news is that Guests may take advantage of Extra Magic Hours on the day of their arrival as 1 of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Before you arrive at the Theme Park, you should not only Check-In Online up to 60 days in advance through your My Disney Experience Account, but upon arriving at your Walt Disney World resort hotel, you need to Check-In with Guest Services to inform them of your arrival.

    Even if you room is not ready at that time, you will be free to leave your bags with Bell Services or they will be held by Disney's Magical Express at Bell Services if you used their baggage handling services. Then all you need to do is hop aboard Disney's Complimentary Resort Transportation and you're all set to begin your Extra Magical experience.

    Be sure to take advantage of booking Advanced Dining Reservations, scheduling your FastPass+ selections and getting all of your memories preserved by Disney PhotoPass Photographers using your MagicBands and My Disney Experience Account.

    Have a Blast!
