    What is the benefit of checking in online before going to Disney

    Hello, Tina,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  The Online Check-In process at Walt Disney World helps to reduce your wait time when you arrive at your resort.  From my own experience, I can vouch for how smoothly it goes and that it has expedited the process.  And for me, anything I can do to speed up getting to a nearby theme park is always a good option!

    If you'd like to read more details Walt Disney World's Online Check-In, you can search on the internet for a recently published article The Pros and Cons of Disney World Online Check-In by Erin Foster. I think you'll find the details shared in the article helpful in case you are debating if you should do it or not. 

    If we can answer any further questions, please let us know!  -Kara
