    When can I check into my WDW resort? I have the My Disney Experience App loaded already. Also, how soon in advance should I order meals using mobile order?

    Hi, there!

     James, I'm so pleased to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Now more than ever is the time to visit!

     Online Resort Check-In is one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel. When you complete the check-in process ahead of time, you may be able to skip the Front Desk entirely upon arrival! I'm happy to tell you that Online Check-In can be completed immediately after you have linked your Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account. In fact, I've already completed the online check-in process for my 2020 July stay! Since you have the My Disney Experience mobile app loaded on your device, you should be ready to go.

     The My Disney Experience mobile app really IS magic at your fingertips! One of my favorite features is the mobile food and beverage ordering feature. This convenient option saves my family lots of precious time in the theme parks! With just a few taps on your mobile device, you can browse menus and place orders at over 25 Quick-Service dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. When you arrive at the restaurant, simply press the "I'm here" button on the app, and your order will be ready within minutes! I typically place my family's mobile food orders 20 - 30 minutes ahead of time. We love to maximize our time in the theme parks, so we'll place our order while we're in line for an attraction. Once we're done riding, we'll head to the dining location! 

     I hope this was helpful, James. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
