    Thinking about a flight that lands at 6am. Is this too early to check in. Will I be able to go to my resort, leave my carry on and go to the parks? Is there a magical express bus that goes straight to the parks? Thanks!

    Hi Ernest! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! So nice to see you again!

    Disney's Magical Express is wonderful! The motorcoach transportation takes you to and from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort hotels (not to theme parks). The complimentary service is always a wonderful way to start your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I love how you are maximizing your time at Walt Disney World Resort! Great news! You will be able to check-in to your Disney Resort hotel room when your flight arrives. Your plan is perfect. Proceed to Disney's Magical Express and when you arrive at your Resort hotel, you can check your carry on items with Bell Services. From there, you can head to the theme park and enjoy your day!

    Make sure you use the Online Check-In service. If you provide a cell phone number, you will receive a text when your Resort hotel room is available. Based on your early arrival time, it might be nice to head back to your Resort hotel room for a few moments for some rest (or you can keep going and enjoy the day)!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with us. Please let us know if you need any other tips as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!!!
