    We are arriving late on a Friday night to Coronado Springs. We have our magic bands. Do we need to stop by the check in desk at the resort or will we receive room info before our arrival and be able to go straight to our room instead?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    One of the best features of your My Disney Experience account and your Magic Band is the ability to head straight to your room after the 3 pm check-in time. To take advantage of this, be sure to complete the online check-in that can be found on your My Disney Experience account. Online resort check-in is made available to guests 60 days prior to arrival.

    By completing these steps, you can arrange for a text message and/or email to be sent to you once your room ready. So anytime after the check-in time of 3 pm, you will receive a message telling you your room number. 

    After a magical night's rest, you can visit the front desk of Disney's Coronado Springs to ensure that your pin number is set and have any questions answers that you may have!

    If for any reason you don't receive your room number before you arrive at Walt Disney World, you will need to stop by the front desk to receive that information.

    Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney vacation!
