    When should I check into my Disney resort reservation?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sunny! In just a few short weeks, you'll arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth - so many enchanting memories set to be made just ahead!

    As long as you have linked your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account, you can avail of Online Check-In right now. You can make any room requests through the My Disney Experience App when using Online Check-in. If it suits you, you can bypass the Front Desk and head straight to your room using this service. There's a handy video of how this whole process works. 

    On your arrival day, you can check your room status, including a notification when your room is ready (typically from 3pm for Disney Resort hotels). If you arrive a little earlier, Hakuna Matata! It means no worries. You can leave any luggage with Bell Services and explore the beautiful resort and its amenities or embark on the most magical adventure at Walt Disney World Parks.  

    Sunny, I do hope this information helps you today. Please pop back with any further questions. I'm wishing you blue skies and sunshine for your trip, Louise.
