    We arrive next weekend and are meeting up with other family members at the same resort. How do we get rooms next to each other? Is that something we can request with online check-in or is that something we need to do in person at the resort?

    Hey there, Jonathan! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your Disney Vacation is less than a week out! Are you excited yet? The fact that you are visiting with family is sure to make your stay even more magical! At least I hope so — we all know how families can be! But being inside the Disney “bubble” will make all your worries fade away and have you singing Hakuna Matata!

    Jonathan, I recommend calling the Disney Resorts Collection Hotel team at (407) 939-1936 in advance and speaking with a Cast Member to explain your situation. Before calling, it will help if you have the reservation numbers of all of your family members so that the team can best assist you. They will try to work their magic to get you all near one another. I would also confirm with the Cast Member once you arrive at your resort. Keep in mind that these requests are not guaranteed, and “near” is a relative term in the Disney Hotel space. This may mean that the rooms will be on the same floor or in the same building, so be sure to communicate your desire. And this way, if there are any family members you don’t want that close, you can blame it on the process. It’ll be our little secret!

    And just a friendly reminder that as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, Disney Resorts Collection Guests get 30-minute early entry to each Walt Disney World Theme park every day! This window is such a useful advantage and can help you access some of the hottest attractions before the parks officially open. It’s one of the many (and probably one of my favorite) benefits of staying on property!

    I hope this helps, Jonathan! The magic awaits!

    You’ve got a friend in me,
