    If I transfer from a non Disney to a Disney resort hotel can I use my magic band the whole day of check in before the actual check in time of 3pm? I want to check my bags at 7am at Pop Century before hitting the park, I've done the online check in.

    Hi Whitley! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation starts very soon, and I am sure you are filled with excitement! You will love your stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort. There are a ton of benefits to staying at a Disney Resort hotel and my favorite thing of all is that I don't have to feel like I am leaving the magic at the end of the day ... it carries on back at my resort!

    I almost always arrive prior to the official check-in time of my Disney Resort hotel stays because I want to take advantage of every second! I have arrived as early as 6:00 A.M. on my check-in days and headed to the theme parks to dive right in! With your Online Check-In, you should have been able to enter an estimated arrival time. This increases your chances (though doesn't guarantee) that your room may be available when you arrive. On one of my visits, I received a text message that my room was ready at 9:00 A.M., but I've also gotten a notification in the late afternoon, as well.

    I suggest that you stop by the Front Desk when you arrive to see if your room is available already. It probably won't be that early, but it doesn't hurt to ask! If it isn't, go ahead and check your bags in with Bell Services, then head out and enjoy your first day. Your MagicBand will be ready for all of the fun with you!

    Enjoy your stay, Whitley! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
