Know Before You Go

Checking in at your Hotel

At all hotels, when you check-in at the reception desk you'll be given:
- Your admission tickets to the Disney Parks, if you have reserved them: they'll let you come and go between Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park throughout the day.
- Disney Parks and Disney Village maps, complete with smart tips, to make the most of your visit.
- Vouchers for the various options you may have reserved (meal vouchers, meals with Disney Characters, dinner-show, excursions, etc).
- The key to your room.

If you're staying in a Disney Hotel:

  • On the day of your arrival, your room is available from 3pm.
  • On the day of your departure, you will need to vacate your room by 11am (ask at reception for the Express Checkout Service).          

There's a left luggage counter in your hotel if you wish to spend one last day in the Parks (this service is not available at Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch).


There are over 50 restaurants to choose from at the Resort, catering for a wide variety of tastes. See our dining section for details of all restaurants and quick service places.
