    I have booked a stay at a Disney Value hotel. I will not arrive until after 11pm. Can I check in on the app once the room is ready & go straight to my room? Or do I have to go to the front desk?

    Hi Lesley,

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for stopping by today with your vacation planning question, we are always happy to help you make the most out of your upcoming vacation.

    You will be happy to know that Guests arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort at all hours of the day, and you are certainly welcome to utilize the Direct-to-Room Service.  In fact, for late arrivals this can be quite a handy feature!  In order to use this service, you should first make sure that your Disney Resort hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account.  Next, prior to your arrival you can do your Online Check-In which is available in your My Disney Experience account or your My Disney Experience App.  Usually, Guests will have the option to do online check-in starting around 60 days before their arrival.  Then on the day you arrive, you can check your My Disney Experience App for notifications about your room.  Once your room is ready, you will be alerted to the room number and can use your My Disney Experience App or an active Disney Band to unlock your room.

    Have a Magical vacation!  As you continue with your vacation planning, be sure to come back and visit us here at planDisney with all of your vacation planning questions.

    See Ya Real Soon,
