    Hi. I am wondering if we are flying in on a late flight and it will be after midnight before we arrive at the hotel , can I book my first night on that day or does it have to be the (before midnight day). Thanks

    Hi Janice,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Let me do my best to help you.

    The Disney Resort hotels check-in time is 3:00 p.m., except for the Disney Deluxe Villas, whose check-in time is 4:00 p.m., and The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, that have a check-in time of 1:00 p.m. The check-out time for all resorts is 11:00 a.m. Visit the Resort Check-In Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

    You may arrive earlier to the hotel and start enjoying the amenities offered, including theme park tickets and meal entitlements (if you have a Disney Dining Plan), as early as 6:00 a.m. Your room might not be ready until the regular check-in time, but there’s lots of fun things to do in the meantime.

    Since you’ll be arriving shortly after midnight, your reservation should include that night. Once you get to the Resort hotel, you’ll room will be ready and waiting for you. You can rest and be ready to start your day nice and early. Make sure you do Online Check-In up to 60 days in advance, which will expedite the whole process. 

    If you have any other questions, feel free to come back. We are here to help.
