    We will be at WDW Jan 22-28. There are 8 of us total 4 adults and 4 kids (14, 12, 6, & and 3) staying in 2 rooms at Pop. What time is check in and do we have to wait till then to get our park passes? Any tips on hopping??

    Hi Lee,

    Check in time is at 3:00pm. You are welcome to take care of the paperwork and store your bags before that time, though. You'll be given your Key to the World Cards which will serve as you park passes, hold your Disney Dining Plan credits (if you purchased the Plan) and will serve as your room key once the room is ready. Guests often check in early and then head out to the parks for the day. Your room will be waiting for you once your return and you can ask Bell Services to deliver the bags for you at that time.

    Hopping from Epcot to the Magic Kingdom and back is super easy because of the monorail.  You should plan on an hour to get from your resort to any park. This is because the buses come every 20 minutes and you never know if you just missed one (so it could be awhile) or if one is coming around the bend (so you'll be ahead of schedule). Just wanted to point that out for you. We rarely hop because I don't like wasting all of that precious vacation time traveling on a bus.

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation,
