When booking a Center Parcs break, you can pay extra for early arrival.
Early arrival means you can access your lodge from 2 pm rather than 4 pm, and it costs between £45 and £65. The exact price you pay depends on the type of lodge.
All guests are welcome to arrive at the Center Parcs village from 10 am for free. Early arrival just means you’ll be able to access your lodge earlier.
With that in mind, is early arrival worth it? I don’t think so.
Early arrival can save you a lot of hassle. The traffic from the car park around the Center Parcs village is nonexistent compared to those at 4 pm.

However, I don’t think the potential 2-hour saving and a little hassle is worth a £45 – £65 saving. There are far better things to spend your money on during your Center Parcs break.
If you do decide that Center Parcs’ early entry is worth it for you, then be sure to reserve it as far in advance as possible. The number of early entry slots is limited and will not show on the activities page (under shopping and extras) if it is sold out.
