    What time can you start the check in process with the My Disney App? We are staying at the All Star Music and our reservation says 3:00 PM check in.

    Hi Diane,

    I hope that you're getting excited for your upcoming vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! You're going to have a BLAST!

    I'm happy to let you know that you may begin the online check-in process through My Disney Experience, either online or through the app, as early as 60 days before your arrival! You'll simply set up a credit card for charging purposes, make any room requests, notify the front desk of ways they can contact you, and let them know what time you think you'll be arriving. While having your room ready earlier in the day than the standard check-in time isn't guaranteed, they do try their best to have your room ready as soon as possible. The great thing is that if you've used online check-in and you already have your MagicBands, you can head on out for a day of magic and fun! Depending on which permissions you've given them to contact you, you can receive a text or email when your room is ready!

    I also wanted to let you know that you're considered a Guest of the Resort hotel for your entire check-in and check-out day, so if you arrive early and want to enjoy swimming in the pool or participating in some of the fun activities around Disney's All-Star Music Resort before your room is ready, you're more than welcome to!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Diane, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
