    How can I change my Hotel Arrival time

    Hi, Patricia! Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you've started the online check-in process for your Resort hotel stay. That means your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it! Let's help you make your arrival go as smoothly as a ride on a magic carpet!

    Just to review, when you book a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you'll see your reservation in the "My Plans" section of your My Disney Experience account and the My Disney Experience mobile app. That also gives you the option to skip the front desk and check in online, so you can head straight to the fun! Then, you'll get a text when your room is ready. Cool, right?

    When you check in online, you'll be prompted to enter an arrival time. If you need to adjust your time, you can do that by hopping back into the My Disney Experience mobile app and going to "My Plans" to find your reservation listing. Once you're there, you can modify your selections as often as you need to right up until your arrival day.

    And speaking of the My Disney Experience mobile app, you've never had a friend like it when it comes to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You can use the app to open your Resort hotel room door, order and pay for food, check attraction wait times in the parks, and even for theme park entry when you pair it with the new Disney MagicMobile service! Is there anything we can't do with our phones these days?

    I hope this helps make your vacation planning a breeze, Patricia. Be sure to come back and see us again if you have any more questions!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
