    Can anyone in my travel party check in to the hotel? I have an adult daughter arriving hours before me and I want her to be able to check in and get our keys.

    Welcome to planDisney Marsha! A mother-and-daughter adventure in Walt Disney World sounds just wonderful. I bet you're counting down the days. 

    Did you know you can check-in to your Disney Resort hotel right now? If you have not already done so, please link your Resort reservation to your My Disney Experience Account. Once linked, you can begin the check-in process, and on your arrival day, the My Disney Experience app will let all Guests linked to the reservation know when your room is ready. 

    Your daughter should be able to unlock the door with her My Disney Experience app or her active MagicBand. It is worth reading through some of the information online that walks you through this Direct-to-Door process. Please know that you can always pick up 'keys' from the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel if this is your preference. 

    If your room is not ready when your daughter arrives, please let her know that she may leave any luggage with Bell Services and will be free to enjoy all the delights and activities on offer at your Disney Resort hotel. There are so many perks to being a Disney Resort hotel Guest, it's worth reminding yourself of all the extra magic!

    Marsha, I'm sending all my best wishes for a fantastic trip for you and your daughter. There really is no place like Walt Disney World to bring out that fun inner child! You'll both have the best time! Louise

Meet the Panelist: Louise, United Kingdom

Welcome to planDisney! I'm happiest in perpetual planning mode for our next Walt Disney World trip - it's my chance to catch a bit of Disney magic in-between visits.

Walt Disney World provides the ultimate sense of escapism! I understand how much guests want to get out of their trip, especially when travelling internationally. Please let me help you prepare a 'practically perfect in every way' journey so you can be truly whisked away by Disney magic!
