    Hi! We are surprising our 5 year old with her very first trip to Disney World in September! And we'll be staying on the resort (check on my bucket list), but if we happen to get their early can we use the pool at the resort?

    Hiya Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We thank you for sending us your excellent question. Your little Princess-in-training’s magical vacation is quickly approaching. Congratulations on doing such a fabulous job planning her first vacation and crossing off one of your bucket list entries. Rest assured, with the help of your Moms Panel friends, your vacation will be filled with endless magic, unforgettable memories, and a sprinkling of Pixie Dust.

    Jennifer, you are certainly welcome to enjoy the pool at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel while you wait for your Guest room to be ready. Please remember to expedite your check-in process by using Online-Check In before your Resort hotel arrival. Just keep swimming!

    Have you checked out the planning guide for parents of preschoolers? It is chock-full of tips for planning Walt Disney World Resort vacations for young Mouseketeers!

    Mom’s Tip: Remember to pack your “swimming essentials” in your carry-on if you will be using Disney’s Magical Express service. Any luggage that is sent to the Disney Resort hotel (via Disney's Magical Express) may take a couple of hours to arrive.

    Jennifer, I hope I have helped answer your question. I wish your daughter a “practically perfect” first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. If you need any more help, please visit us again.

    Wishing you a Splash-tastic Time,
