Factory Tour Scheduling

Do I have to schedule the Factory Tour or does my CA do that as part of the PCD schedule of events?
Thanks

Your CA should schedule the PCD and the factory tour is already automatically part of that, so you won't have to do anything special to get it. At least, this was so in my case.

The factory tour will be part of the PCD as long as it is open that day. I've seen comments about it not being available. But the day my son and I did PCD we got a factory tour, and we did nothing to make that happen.

One more question,
Do you check out in the morning or do you come back after delivery to check out?

Check out in the morning before you go to the Delivery Center unless you are staying an extra night.

You won't be through with PCD until ~2pm. Most hotels want you to check out by ~11 or 12am. Sometimes a hotel will grant you a late check out if you ask. If you're concerned about luggage, don't be. Everyone will check out and bring their luggage with them.

If you are not on a scheduled tour, go to the information desk at the museum. Nicely, ask to be on the waiting list. Chances are there is a spot for you. If not in English, go on the German one.

You do the AM checkout. Need to get up earlier if you want breakfast @ the Greenville Marriott

, There was coffee & donuts @ PCD. We finished by around 3 pm , after quick tour of Museum & Gift Shop. My wife & then left & drove to Atlanta. We were there before dark. What a fabulous experience.
