    We are staying @ All Star Movie Resort & planning to go to Animal Kingdom when we arrive, but it will be before we are able to check-in to our room. Can we park at the resort before check-in & take a the bus to AK w/o paying extra parking fees?

    Hey there, Caleb! 

    I can think of no better way to spend your time waiting on your Disney Resorts Collection hotel to be ready than to explore Pandora - World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom. 

    Caleb, you are absolutely able to park at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort before your room is ready and take the bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom. If you would like, Bell Services would be happy to hold your bags so they are not sitting in your car. Parking fees at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel are calculated on a per night basis, so there will be no difference to your parking fees if you arrive a little early on your first day. 

    But Caleb, I think I may have an even better solution for you. Did you know that because you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will receive complimentary parking at the theme parks? This complimentary parking is active on the day that you check-in and your room does not have to be ready, so feel free to drive straight to the park! 

    If you used Disney's Online Check-In Service, you will receive a text message when your room is ready, and you can head straight to your room from the theme park, skipping the front desk. 

    I hope that this answered your question, Caleb! Please come back here if we can help answer any other questions for you! 

    Happy Travels!
