    I am staying at Pop Century. We want to go to a park on the day we arrive. We plan to arrive early. Can I park at Pop and ride skyliner before checkin time?

    Hi Tammy and welcome back to planDisney!

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is so soon!  I'm sure you're going to be too excited to sleep tonight knowing that you'll be hanging out with Mickey Mouse and friends tomorrow.  Christmastime is my favorite time of year to visit because I love seeing all of the festive decorations all around the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.

    I have great news for you and that is that you can start using all of the benefits that come with being a Guest of a Disney Resort hotel from the moment you arrive.  Even if you get there before check-in, you can still use the parking lot, pools, eat at the restaurants and use Disney transportation.  I love that you're planning on hitting the ground running as soon as you get there.  What a way to maximize the magic!

    If you have completed online check-in for tomorrow, there is no need to head to the front desk.  You will receive a text, email and/or a My Disney Experience mobile app notification when your room is ready.  If you're out playing in a park when your room ready alert comes in, no problem!  Head back to Disney's Pop Century Resort whenever you're ready.  One of my favorite perks of staying at Pop Century is the easy access to the Disney Skyliner.  It's so convenient to just hop right on from your hotel and head to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It's such a nice and relaxing ride, too!.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions and I hope you have a fantastic time!

    Have a magical day!
