    We are staying at Pop Century in October. If we arrive before 3pm are we able to swim and explore the hotel prior to check in?

    Hiya, Julie! Thanks for your question.

    What a great time to visit Walt Disney World. So many of my favorite things take place in the fall, including the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. And last year, for the first time, the special Disney After Hours Boo Bash took place - what a frighteningly good time that was.

    Actually, Julie, you can check in before you even arrive at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel by using your My Disney Experience app. If you go there and look at your future plans, you'll see the option that says "Start Check-In Now." Complete this section, and you won't even need to stop at the front desk when you arrive at your resort. You'll get a text letting you know when your room is ready, the app will tell you your room number, and you can use the app or your MagicBands to open the door. 

    So, since you'll already be checked in, of course you can swim and explore the hotel! Disney's Pop Century Resort is home to the Hippy Dippy Pool, which has really cute flower water jets. It's a great place to start your vacation. Grab some lunch or do some shopping at Everything POP Shopping and Dining - they have a really good 50th Anniversary Celebration dessert. 

    I hope your trip is practically perfect, Julie! If there's anything else we can help with, just come on back and see us.
