    We are staying at Pop Century. Can we check in to the room earlier than 3 pm?

    Hi Jeremy,

    The check-in time at the Pop Century resort is 3:00 p.m. However, if your room is ready before that, they'll certainly let you in. The availability of this really depends on how full the resort is. Personally, I've been about 50% successful in getting into my room early.

    But even if you're room isn't ready, you're welcome to go ahead and register at the hotel as early in the day as you like, even in the wee hours of the morning. When you register, you will be given your Key to the World Card, which will function as your room key (when the room is ready), as well as your Disney resort ID card. The Key will also be loaded with any park tickets or dining plan credits you may have purchased. You can also arrange for it to be a charge card in the parks.

    After you've registered, you're welcome to leave your luggage with Bell Services, who will hold it in a secure location for you. Then, you're free to go off and enjoy the parks.

    Have a great time!
