    Check in online

    Hello Rebecca,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. The countdown is on, and you'll be joining The World's Most Magical Celebration before you know it.

    As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest you probably received an invitation to check-in to your resort online. I know it seems early, but online check in is one detail you can take care of right now to help get your magical vacation started as soon as possible. 

    The check-in process is super simple using the My Disney Experience App on your mobile device or by logging into your My Disney Experience account on your computer. 

    In the app: Go to the home screen. You should see your Upcoming Plans with your Resort Hotel listed and a button inviting you to Start Check-In Now. Click that link and follow the prompts. There will even be an opportunity for you to make special requests. 

    On the Walt Disney World website: The process is very similar. Click My Disney Experience and log into your account. Then select My Plans. Scroll down until you see your hotel reservation and click the link to Start Check-In. Follow the prompts to complete the process.

    On the day you arrive you'll be notified via text when your room is available with a welcome message and room number. You can simply head to your room and open your door using your Magic Band or your mobile device through the My Disney Experience App. 

    Of course, you can always choose to check in the traditional way, and Cast Members are always on hand at the Front Desk to help you if you need additional assistance. Whether you check in online or in-person, if you arrive before your room is available you can always leave your luggage with Bell Services and head off to explore your resort, play in the parks, or enjoy shopping and dining in Disney Springs.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
