We pretty much figured out the best way to go at the disney parks. When you're staying over on the weekend and you're in one of the Disney hotel rooms, when you get in town the first thing you want to do is head right to the hotel and the check-in area. Even if you're hotel room is not ready, you're going to get your magic band and you're going to get the key to the world. Once you are booked in their electronic system, then you can go to more things and have free parking and it doesn't really matter when the room finally gets ready. They will call you on the phone, as an automated message will tell you that your room is waiting. You can be inside the Magic Kingdom having a cocktail on Main Street while watching the parade, and you can mosey back to your room whenever you feel like it. The first thing though is to get your self in the Disney electronic system, your room can wait!
