    Hi I am traveling with my family to the Walt Disney World Resort and we arrive to Florida at 6am in the morning to so we were wondering what was the earliest that we can register into our room?

    Hi Michelle,

    You can go to your Disney resort as soon as you arrive in the Orlando area, even if if it is 6 am.  Your specific room may not be ready at your time of arrival since the official check-in time is not until 3 pm but the Bell Services team will hold your luggage for you, if you like.  You can get your Key to the World cards (room keys) right away and, if your room is not yet ready, the Cast Members will gladly text you with your room number as soon as it is ready.  Meanwhile, you and your family can go off and explore whatever part of Walt Disney World you choose.  The magic can begin right away!

    If you haven't already done so, call your resort or the Walt Disney Travel Company to alert them that you plan to arrive at your resort early that morning.  It makes it more likely that they will have a room for you when you arrive.  We did this once and were delighted to find our room at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort clean and waiting for us at 8:30 am.  We were very lucky that morning, indeed!

    Wishing you and your family a truly magical vacation.  Let us know if you need any additional information as your trip approaches.
