Travel plans are a very important part of the overall planning process for your Disney vacation. Whether you choose to drive or fly, keep in mind what you want to do when you arrive at Disney World. Basically, you need to decide if you want to access the parks that day or chill out at your Resort or spend an afternoon or evening at Disney Springs. At most Disney Resort Hotels, check-in hours usually begin around 3pm. If you arrive early, you have the option of leaving your luggage at a special holding area, to be picked up later. If you have purchased a vacation package that has the “length of stay” option, you and your family can visit any of the four theme parks at any time. If your flight is scheduled for late arrival, you may not want to visit the theme parks until the following morning.
