    I will be coming on April 28th and heard you can check into the hotel before even getting on the plane How does this work? I will be riding the magical express bus from the airport to the French Quarter resort for 7 day stay with park hopper and dining

    Hi Sheri!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! French Quarter is a great resort choice with fun added extras like a boat to take you down the Sassagoula River right into Downtown Disney!

    Indeed, you can expedite your check-in process so that you can jump right into all the MAGIC upon your arrival by using Disney's Online Resort Check In service in advance.

    Through this service, you can confirm all your travelling party's information & assign a credit card to be used for the duration of your stay for charging privileges in the parks, shops & restaurants. Processing this information in advance will save you some time when you arrive at the resort.

    To process your Online Check-in, simply sign in through your Walt Disney World online ID and access your reservation online. If you booked through a travel agent, you'll need to find your resort reservation number first by calling Walt Disney World at 407-W-DISNEY. The Online check-in option is located under the 'My Disney Vacation' tab on the Walt Disney World website.

    After your short Magical Express motor coach ride to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, simply proceed to the 'Online Check-in' kiosk in the resort lobby. A Cast Member will grab your already-prepared guest folio, hand you your Key to The World cards and other handy information about the resort, parks and dining - and you'll be on your way into the parks in a flash!

    Oh - and a final piece of advice ... you MUST try the Beignets at Sassagoula Floatworks food court. They are absolute heaven!

    Please visit the Moms Panel again if we can help you out further.
    Wishing you a Magical vacation Sheri!
