    How many days in advance can we start our online check-in? Can I start it at the airport before we fly into Orlando?

    Hi, there!

     Thanks for bringing another question to planDisney, Ashley. We are delighted to help you plan your much-anticipated Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     I have good news for you. You can complete the Online Check-In process right now! You certainly do not need to wait until you're at the airport. I actually recommend completing Online Check-In at least a week ahead of your arrival date. Room assignments are often made a few days before arrivals, and you'll want to be sure to have any available room requests on file by that point. Completing the Online Check-In process is super easy! Simply log in to your My Disney Experience account, scroll down to the "My Plans" section, and click the "Start Check-In" button to the right of your resort confirmation. Then you'll add your mobile number for messages during your vacation, set up a payment method and pin number so that you can charge purchases to your hotel account, and confirm your resort arrival. You may then be able to make up to two room requests! From one stroller-pushing mama to another, I recommend requesting a room on the ground floor or near an elevator. My little ones often fall asleep on our way back to our room, and being able to keep them in the stroller all the way to our door makes for an easy transition into bed!

     You are going to love the convenience of the My Disney Experience mobile app before, during, and after your vacation. It really is magic at your fingertips! I especially love the Mobile Order feature. This handy tool saves my family lots of valuable time in theme parks and makes placing orders for my picky eater a breeze. 

     I hope this was helpful, Ashley. Please visit us again soon!
