    We will be going to Disney late February staying at Caribbean Beach. If I use direct to room online check in do I still need to go to the front desk for a parking pass?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary!

    You must be so excited for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World. It's so close!

    When Guests choose to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, they get to enjoy so many perks, you might even say that their trip is extra pixie-dusted! For example, the My Disney Experience mobile app is a fabulous tool for all park Guests; however, those staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels enjoy additional features. Utilized Online Check-In? That app will tell you when your room is ready, the room number, and even allow you to get directions to that room. No need for a parking pass anymore, either. Just leave your car near your room at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

    On my family's recent visit, we checked in online, left our car at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel (where the front desk confirmed that parking passes are no longer needed) and headed right to the parks using complimentary Disney Resort Transportation. It's such a relief to know that, once you arrive, you can leave so many stressful details to Disney. Let the vacation begin!

    Have so much fun planning your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Mary! As you think of more questions, be sure to send them our way. We love to help!
