Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Our WDW trip begins Sept. 8...we are driving down on the 7th and staying off propert about 4 miles away. If I do the on-line check-in, will our room be ready that morning so we can get straight to the parks?

    Unfortunately, Lesli, online check-in doesn't really speed up the preparation of your room.  What it will do is lessen the time you spend standing at the check-in desk of your resort.  Without the forms and charging privileges issues to deal with, you'll breeze right through.  Upon getting your Key To The World card at the resort, you can provide your cell phone number to the Cast Member assisting you.  From there, you'll be free to spend your day in the parks or at Downtown Disney (bell services will hold your luggage for you).  When your room is ready, you'll get a text letting you know your room number.  There will be no need to return to the check-in counter when you arrive back at your resort, just use your key to get into your room.  I hope that helps!
