    Hi there! I was just wondering about the check in process for the Contemporary resort? We are staying with two toddlers and plane lands at 11am so I’m hoping we can get into our room for a quick nap. Is there anyway to guarantee an early check-in?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Courtney. We're so glad you're here!

     You're going to love Disney's Contemporary Resort. Its proximity to Magic Kingdom Park can't be beat! I completely understand your concern about your toddlers napping. While there's no guarantee you'll get in to your Resort hotel room before official check-in at 3:00 PM, there are certainly a few things you can do to sprinkle some pixie-dust on your chances! 

     Be sure to complete Disney's complimentary Online Check-In service prior to your arrival. It's easy! Visit the My Disney Experience section on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Click on "My Reservations and Tickets" to view your Resort hotel reservation. Below your Confirmation Number, you'll see a blue hyperlink that says "Start Check-In." Simply click there to complete the Online Check-In process! You can enter contact information for communications during your stay, enter a payment method for charges, note your arrival time, and even create a personal pin for your MagicBands. Here's the important part! There's a section labeled "Room Location Requests." In this section, you can make up to two room requests. Select at least one, and a box will magically appear allowing you to indicate if having your room ready for early arrival is a higher priority than any of the requests you selected - check the box, Courtney! If you want to be absolutely sure that the request is on your file, call Disney's Contemporary Resort a few days before your visit at (407) 824-1000.

     Thanks for stopping by!
