    Resort Check in Time

    What time is Pop Century's check in time? I want to say it's like 2 or 3 but I can't remember if that is correct or not.

    Thanks!

    All the websites that I can find are saying 3PM

    Official check-in time for resorts is 3:00 p.m., however, I've found that most of the time the room is ready long before that. I think there's only been one occasion where we have arrived at a resort and our room was not ready.
    Upcoming Trips to WDW:

    Dec 6-10: Disney Wonder
    Dec 10-19: Port Orleans French Quarter

    Yes, 3 PM. You used to be able check your bags earlier at the resort and go to the parks and come back and your room will be ready. They usually give you a number to call to check when the room is ready if you arrive in the morning or early afternoon.

    Yep - you can still do that. We always take a red-eye from our city so we end up at the resort around 9am. Often times the rooms are not ready that early (as they do not "have" to be ready until 3pm), but we just leave the bags and head to the parks.

    If you think that you will get there fairly early, one thing we do is pack one small bag that has our immediate essentials: swim suit (if we want to just nap and chill around the pool), shorts, any medication, etc. That way, we have easy access to it without having to search through our luggage in the middle of the lobby.

    I'm hoping to arrive at PC around noon, so I'll do as Suzy suggested and pack all my stuff for the parks in one bag so I can easily pull it out if the room is not ready.

    thanks!

    We have checked in as early as 6:30 AM before April! When we drive down we generally stay at a hotel off property the night before and then we get up early and head over to WDW around 7 or so. Generally speaking when we check in at 7 they will usually have a room for us all ready to check into. I think maybe once in the last 6 trips they haven't had our room ready and that was at the Wilderness Lodge.

    April, they will also move your luggage to your room for you once it's ready so your bags will be there waiting for you when you get back to the resort!
