    When I want to book a hotel on your website why the check-in date shows up as "Departing"? Does "Departing" section mean the check-in date?

    Willkommen, Okan. It's a pleasure to answer your question today. 

    I see the 'depart' terminology to which you are referring, and I am pleased to confirm that it is referring to your desired check-in date. As some Walt Disney World Travel Company Guests choose to add a flight to their package, it's the date that one would depart their homeland for their holiday. 'Returning' on the date they intend to fly home and/or check out of their Disney Resort hotel. I'm sorry as I can understand how this may have appeared a little confusing at first. Did you know there is a German-language Walt Disney World Travel Company site? If you need guidance deciding upon your perfect Disney Resort hotel, please check out the helpful podcasts by planDisney! 

    When you arrive, you can swing by Guest Relations to pick up a German Park Map, which should make navigating the Parks a cinch. These extremely knowledgeable Cast Members should be able to help with any other questions you may have. If you miss the taste and sound of home, head over to Biergarten Restaurant in EPCOT, where Oktoberfest is celebrated every single day! The food is delightful here, and its festive atmosphere will transport you home.

    Okan, I hope this information helps today. If there is anything else I can help with, I'll be right here at planDisney. All my best wishes for a magical vacation. 

    Auf Wiedersehen,
