    I want to check-in for my upcoming trip in March.

    Hey there, hi there, ho there Susan, welcome to planDisney! Can you believe your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is almost here? You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Online check-in is a great time saver at Walt Disney World, allowing you to bypass the front desk and go straight to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room!

    My family and I have always taken advantage of the Direct-to-Room Service that Walt Disney World offers. The service allows us to simplify our arrival by checking in online via the My Disney Experience app or website to bypass the front desk and go directly to our room at Disney Resort hotels, while still enjoying a magical Walt Disney World welcome! With the service, you'll be able to view your reservation, receive real-time room-ready updates, including your room number and arrival instructions, have digital access to Resort hotel maps!

    Follow these simple steps to enjoy Direct-to-Room service at your Disney Resort hotel:
    1. Visit the “My Plans” section of your My Disney Experience account. Your check-in will also appear on your app home screen.
    2. Select “Start Check-In,” your reservation page will open.
    3. Verify your email and phone number so Disney can contact you, including to tell you your room is ready.
    4. Follow prompts to enter arrival time, verify credit card information, select PIN for hotel account, and any room location requests.
    5. Agree to Online Check-In policies.
    A quick reminder Susan, this service is available at all hotels operated by Disney at Walt Disney World Resort. This service is not available at other hotels, such as Swan & Dolphin or Disney Springs Resort Area hotels, though individual hotels may have their own, unrelated online check-in.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Susan! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
