Disney Vacation Club Resort Check-In & Check-Out Times

Disney Vacation Club Sign at Saratoga Springs

When planning your Disney vacation, it’s important to know the check-in and check-out times for the Disney Vacation Club Resort you’ll be visiting. Thankfully, Disney makes it easy to know as all of Disney’s Deluxe resorts have the same standardized check-in and check-out times.

Check-In & Check-Out Times

Check-In Time

4:00 PM

Check-Out Time

11:00 AM

For all of Disney’s Deluxe resorts guests can check-in starting at 4:00 PM, and check-out will be at 11:00 AM.

While Disney Cast Members do everything in their power to ensure rooms are ready by check-in time, room availability is not guaranteed by 4:00 PM. It is rare that delays happen, but please be aware that is possible.

Direct-to-Room Service

Direct-To-Room Service

Disney offers something called “Direct-to-Room Service,” allowing guests with Disney Vacation Club Resort reservations to go directly to their room without needing to check-in at the front desk. Guests can access their room by using the My Disney Experience app on their mobile device, or their Magic Band.

So, if you’re looking for an easy Disney vacation experience, Disney Vacation Club Resorts provide that, with easy check-in and check-out times as well as direct-to-room service!

If you’d like to learn everything there is to know about the direct-to-room service, including step-by-step instructions on how to use it, you can read our in-depth article here: How The Direct-To-Room Service Works On The My Disney Experience App.

Mobile Resort Checkout

You won’t have to do the extra step of visiting the Front Desk when you’re ready for check-out! If you have a credit card on file, or you have a zero-dollar balance, then you can take advantage of these convenient check-out features.

When you’re ready to check-out, there are 2 easy ways to avoid stopping by the front desk:

    • Option 1: Use the My Disney Experience App to check-out – You can simply use the MDE app to check-out under the “Resort Hotel” section.
    • Option 2: Check-out automatically – Guests will be automatically checked-out at 11:00 AM if they have not previously used another method to check out.

Enjoy The Resort Before Or After Your Reservation

Whether you arrive to the resort early on you check-in day, or want to explore the resort after check-out on your departure day, Disney has you covered.

If you arrive before being able to check-in, on your day of arrival, you can store your luggage with Bell Services and enjoy the resort while your room is being prepared. This means you can access all the great features of the resort such as the pools, dining locations, arcades, playgrounds, and much more. This is a great way to get your bearings and learn about what your resort has to offer while waiting for your room.

Likewise, if you’d like to stay at the resort and continue to enjoy the amenities outside of your room after check-out, you can also store your luggage with Bell Services and enjoy the resort for the rest of the day. Guests will still be able to charge purchases around the resort to their room for that day as well, and will see those charges reflected on an itemized bill that can be found in the My Disney Experience app.
