    Switching hotels for last night, planning to spend day at pool in new hotel, have 4:30adr but cant ck into hotel till 3, any chance of getting to ck in early so we have enough time to shower, dress, and get to our adr using disney transportation? Thanks!

    Hi Christy,

    Checking into a resort early is always an unpredictable event. I have been able to be in my room at 9:00 am but most times it is always at the 3:00 pm time frame. It really depends on availability at the particular resorts you are staying at on your last night. You can always ask if you can have an earlier check in. In addition, if your room is not ready, the resorts will call a cell phone or provide you with a number you can call to check on your room's availability.

    When I am spending on my day at the pool prior to checking in or out, I often look at the hotels facilities on site to see if there is a shower in the bathrooms I can use. Another great place to shower is if there is a fitness center on site as well. You can look at your resorts amenities on line to see if these are an option.

    If this is not an option, then consider using a taxi to take you to your Advance Dining Reservation.

    Finally, if you would like bell services to help with your move from your first hotel to the second, they can arrange the transportation of your luggage so you do not need to move it yourself.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
