    What advantages are there registering on line

    Welcome Home, JoAnne!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your fabulous question about Online Check-In. Online Check-In service allows you to start the Disney Resort hotel check-in process online from home. Using Online Check-In may reduce your registration time upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort — expediting the start of your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    During the Online Check-In process, you provide the information that is normally collected by the Cast Members at the Front Desk of Disney Resort hotels. Upon arrival at your Disney Resort hotel, you can bypass the regular Check-In location and instead enter the “Online Check-In” area. In my personal experience, the Online Check-In areas always have shorter wait times than the regular Check-In areas. Once you have located the “Online Check-In” sign, proceed towards the next available Cast Member and you will receive your Welcome Folder and MagicBands—if you did not already receive your MagicBands in advance of your vacation.

    You will also be able to make special requests, add a credit or debit card to your Disney Resort hotel account and add a contact number during the Online Check-In process. The earlier you make special requests, the more likely they are to be accommodated. You can begin the Online Check-In process 60 days in advance of your vacation.

    Disney Mom Tip: There are other ways of getting to the fun — faster! FastPass+ service is also available to Disney Resort hotel Guests 60 days in advance of the start of their vacation.

    JoAnne, if you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again.
