    Hello Is it better to check in for the hotels in person instead of online?

    Hi Nancy! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by to send us your planning question. 

    How exciting that you're only a few sleeps away from the start of your vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth! I'm happy to hear you've chosen to stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. The decision of whether to check in online or in person is one of personal preference. I personally love using Direct-to-Room Service. You can use this service within five days of your arrival, by signing in to your Disney account via the Disneyland website or in the Disneyland Mobile App. I prefer this because I can receive a notification when my room is ready by opting in to receive a text message. This allows me to enjoy some time shopping or dining in the Downtown Disney District while I wait for my room to be ready.

    Did you know that you're arriving at the start of Halloween Time? Just like Cinderella's carriage after midnight, pumpkins will begin to appear all around the Disneyland Resort! Be sure to check out the Disney Eats: Foodie Guide to Halloween at Disneyland Resort 2023 to find out what eats will be available during your visit. It's the spookiest and yummiest time of year to enjoy some treats! 

    I'm wishing you a magical vacation filled with lots of fun, food, and special memories. I hope you will stop by planDisney again in the future. We would love to help when you're ready to plan another vacation!

    See ya real soon!
