Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels will be able to use Disney’s Online Check-In service on the My Disney Experience mobile app, expediting their arrival while providing additional convenience, flexibility and customization of their experience. The feature enables Guests to start the check-in process up to 60 days before their arrival, bypassing the need to visit the front desk and giving families the opportunity to begin their vacation as soon as they set foot in Walt Disney World Resort. Guests complete their check-in by unlocking their room, when it is ready, using the MagicBands sent to them prior to their arrival.
With just a few taps of the screen, you can make room requests, add credit card information and authorize charges, submit an estimated arrival time to help prompt room access, receive a notification when your room is ready and more. Please note that room requests are not guaranteed and guests must provide consent to receive notifications.
The best part? You can begin the check-in process at any point up to 60 days prior to your arrival date – even minutes beforehand as you’re transported on Disney’s Magical Express to your resort hotel.
Check out this video that demonstrates the process.
To use this feature, make sure you have the latest version of My Disney Experience by checking your app store updates.
