    We are staying in a resort hotel with a check in at 3pm and check out at 1100am. The days of the check in and check out are we allowed access to the parks before check in and after check out?

    Hi Shane!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Absolutely!  If you have valid admission tickets for the theme parks, you do not have to be checked-in to your Disney Resort hotel to enjoy spending time there.  If you arrive at your Resort hotel before 3.00pm (or any time before your room is ready) you can leave all your luggage with Bell Services who will store it securely for you until you return.  You can then collect it and take it to your room yourselves, or you can request that they bring it to your room for you.  On your day of check-out you are free to do whatever you wish, as long as you are checked-out of your room by the time specified.  You can also leave your luggage with Bell Services again, if you are to be returning to your hotel before you leave Walt Disney World Resort on your homeward journey.  If you are using Disney's Magical Express to take you back to Orlando International Airport, on the day before your departure you will receive notification of what time the motorcoach will pick you up - this is usually around 3 hours prior to your flight time for domestic flights, and 4 hours for international flights.

    Don't forget to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the official news and latest updates on events that may be happening during your stay.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
