When Does It Become Check-In Day?
So, you're in your car and have been driving for 18 hours straight. It's 1:00 AM when you roll into your Disney Resort. Technically the date is in sync with your reservation's arrival date. But, when does it become Check-In Day?
If I step up to the desk will they allow me check in, issue my Key-To-World cards? Obviously my room won't be ready. But would they allow me to actually get checked in.
There have been times when I've arrived mid to late morning, and a room was ready so they went ahead and let me go to my room. IF they had an unoccupied room, would they let me go to my room?
We'll be arriving at Saratoga Springs for 2 nights (Dec 8 & 9) before going to the Vero Beach Resort for 2 nights with the whole (most if it anyway) family. They're all flying, either on the 8th, or the 10th. To save renting a car, and to carry cargo for out time at Vero Beach (we're planning on a family dinner) I'll be driving. I'm planning to leave by 6 Tuesday morning. That would put me down there about midnight (or later with stops). The family arriving on Wednesday morning is using Magical Express to get from the airport, so I'm planning (hoping) to hit the parks Wednesday morning.
So that's why I wonder, if I arrive at 1 AM, will they allow me to go through the check-in process. Or should I even bother going in, and just find some cheap lodging outside, then check in the next morning.
