    What time is the usual check-in / check-out for standard hotels at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels?

    Hi Candice! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney Resort hotel rooms are available at 3:00 PM. (The check-in time for Disney Deluxe Villas is 4:00 PM and Guests staying at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort may check-in at 1:00 PM.)

    I encourage you to use Disney's Online Resort Check-In service when staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. By checking-in ahead of time online, you save time when you arrive because you already have everything set up (such as your contact information, credit card and PIN code for charging). You can head straight to the Online Check-In Desk and your Welcome Folder will be waiting for you. If you need to pick up your MagicBands, you can do that as well. If you receive your MagicBands prior to your vacation and provide a cell phone number when you do your online check-in, you will receive a text when your Disney Resort hotel room is available and you can head straight to your room (even if it's before 3:00 PM). Your MagicBand will be used to access your room. I would still advise stopping by the Front Desk at some point during your 1st day so you can pick up your Welcome Folder. It will have great information about what is happening at Walt Disney World Resort, and specifically, your Resort hotel during your stay.

    Check-out time is 11:00 AM for all Disney Resort hotels.

    If you are flying, I encourage you to use Disney's Magical Express to get you and your luggage to and from Orlando International Airport. It's a complimentary service and it truly is magical!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if I can help with any other information, tips or advice as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
