First timers! Question about check in

Unread post by Watson2030 » May 6th, 2019, 4:14 am

Hi Everyone!
We are first timers from the UK, travelling to WDW and staying at POFQ in October. We have got a one night stay at Saratoga Springs when we arrive as we got a good deal on flights the night before. We are aware that we'll probably be up really early on check in day for POFQ, and were wondering when the earliest time was for check in? We could then leave our luggage, pick up our Magic Bands and hit the parks taking advantage of the new Extra Extra Magic Hours?
Many thanks,
Debbie :D

You can check in from 6am onwards (they might even let you do so earlier) and if you a transferring from another Disney resort they will transfer your luggage for you and it will be waiting at Bell Services for you for when your room is ready. You can pick up your new magic bands when you check in, or just use the old ones you got from Saratoga. If you did online checkin (with a 6am arrival time, and stating you will be using existing magic bands) then it might even be possible to not bother going to POFQ first thing at all, and just go straight to the park. You'd need to confirm that at Guest Relations at the first hotel though, just to make sure.
