    Hi there! I was wondering if we can take advantage of early theme park entry on the day we're checking in to our Disney resort? We'd like to head straight to the parks as early as possible! Thanks for answering my question! :)

    Hello there, Rachele! 

    Your vacation is during such a magical time! As the flowers sang in Alice in Wonderland, "you can learn a lot of things from the flowers, especially in the month of [May]," when the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full swing! You won't want to miss the beautiful topiaries or the Garden Rocks Concert Series. In fact, the 2023 Garden Rocks concert schedule was just announced. I suggest peaking at the lineup to see if you want to have an EPCOT day on a particular date. 

    I hope you will be happy to hear that Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests can enjoy Early Theme Park Entry on their check-in day. Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels can take advantage of 30-minute early entry into Walt Disney World theme parks daily. I suggest showing up 15 to 30 minutes before this time to be one of the first people in line. You won't want to waste a minute of those magical 30 minutes. My family has ridden so many attractions during this time!

    Did you know that Disney Resort hotel Guests also have the option to purchase individual Lightning Lane entry selections on their check-in day at 7:00 a.m. EST? This will be useful when you want to become a Team Blue recruit on TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise or rock out on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

    Just ensure you have valid theme park admission, theme park reservations, and a Disney band, Key to the World Card, or Disney Magic Mobile pass. You can confirm all of this in your My Disney Experience account. 

    If you need anything else or want any fun recommendations, you know where to find me.

    May the magic be with you!
