    We are trying to figure out what day to do what on our WDW vacation. Since check in is between 3-4 pm, how do we get our Key to the World to enjoy the parks on our first day? Or if we decide to do something else the first day, can we check in after 4 pm?

    Hi Tiffany,

    You can check-in to your resort room any time, but your room is not guaranteed to be ready until after 4:00 pm.  You can leave your cell phone number, and the Cast Members can call or text you when the room is ready.  You will be able to get your Key to the World card at check-in.  If you wanted to visit one of the Theme Parks, Bell Services will stow any of your carry on luggage you have with you.  You can explore the resort and go swimming or head over to Downtown Disney.  You may, of course, check-in after 4:00 pm as well.  It is up to you!  Whatever you decide, I know that your vacation will be just Magical, Tiffany!
