    We are taking a trip to Disney World later this month and were wondering if we were able to begin using the resort amenities, such as the pool, prior to the 3:00 check in time?

    Hi Kendel! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    This is such a great question. As a Walt Disney World Resort guest you will be able to start using all of the resort amenities such as the pool, arcade (if applicable), Complimentary Resort Transportation, and so much more as soon as you arrive on your check in day. I always take advantage of the Online Check-In process which can be completed 60 days in advance of your check in date. This simplifies the check in process once you arrive at your Resort hotel. Once you arrive at your Resort hotel go directly to the front desk. If your room isn’t ready they will take your phone number and text you once your room is available. If your room is not ready you can store your belongings with Bell Services and once inside your room, just call Bell Services to deliver your belongings. As soon as you complete your Check-In feel free to enjoy all of the amenities and services that your Resort hotel has to offer! My kids always want to take a dip in the pool and we take full advantage of the resort amenities as soon as we can!

    I hope that you have an #Unforgettable time!
