Early check in?

What's the earliest you've been able to check in at All Star Movies, or the a Disney hotels in general? We arrive very early in the morning and would love to get into our room early but not sure if that's ever a possibility?? (On a Thursday mid November)

You can check-in as early as 6a, but that doesn't mean a room will be ready for you.

I've checked in at 6:40 am years ago and was lucky enough that our room was ready. But like the pp said, it may not...

I think it is luck of the draw. A couple of times we checked in early and our room was ready.

If you do on-line check-in you can put down what time you will be arriving. This can help with having a room ready but there is no guarantee. There is a better chance if you don't have specific room requests. Good Luck!

We'e checked in between 6 and 7am on serveral of our visits at varying times of the year (Aug, Sept, Oct, Jan). Never once was a room ready for us at that early time. Getting into a room that early is most likely a rare exception rather than the norm. It's no problem though, leave your stuff with bell services and head out to a park until the afternoon.

6am on your check-in day is the earliest you can check-in at any Disney resort. If you plan to arrive before 6am, you either need to book a room for the night before or be prepared to wait until 6am. As PP mentioned, there is a good chance your room won't be ready at that time.
