Bypass The Front Desk And Check-In Online

Lets face it…as magical as you feel when you first step foot into a Walt Disney World Resort, if you can skip standing in another line and get started on your vacation right away, you would.

A lot of guests felt the same way, which is why Disney listened. With the addition of Online Check-in, on My Disney Experience, you can go right to your Hotel Room and bypass the Check-in line altogether.

Online Check-in

60 days prior to the start of your vacation, you can start the online check-in process. This makes that 60 day mark even more important. (This is also the day that guests can choose their Fastpass+ selections)

Check out the video below to see how the Online Check-in works:

When you’re ready to start your online check-in, make sure you have a few things ready.

  • Your Reservation number (linked to My Disney Experience)
  • Credit Card (to put on file)
  • A 4 digit pin that will be used to redeem Meal Credits and/or charge goodies to your room via your MagicBand (you choose the pin)

As soon as you get notification that your room is ready, you’re able to unlock the door with your MagicBand. Disney will send you an email and/or text with your room number, so you can truly skip the front desk.

What do you think about this Online Check-in? Have you used it?
