    We're traveling to WDW for the very first time. We're planing on driving down from Pa. Check-in is at 3pm. Are we able to go to the parks for half the day & then come back & check-in to the resort?

    Hi Cheryl!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Yes, you definitely can spend the morning at the Parks on your arrival date and then head back over to the hotel around 3:00 p.m. to check-in. If you need a place to leave your bags while you are having fun at the Parks, simply talk to Guest Services or a Cast Member at the Bell Stand at your Resort and ask if they can store them until you return. They will be more than happy to do that for you.

    I hope this helps you as you plan your magical Walt Disney World trip. Have a wonderful day!
