    How early can I use online check in. We are going in March 2018.

    Oh, Bonnie, you must be so excited! Only two months until you visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I'm thrilled for you!

    I have good news - you can use the Online Check-in Service now! Log into your My Disney Experience account and go to "My Reservations and Tickets." If you have linked your resort hotel reservation, you should see it on that page. From there, you click the blue "Start Check-in" button and enter your information. With this service, you will be able to do a range of things in advance for your stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel including:
    • Enter your Resort Arrival Time
    • Add a credit card for Hotel Account Charges

    • Make up to two Room Location Requests

    • Choose Hotel Account PIN numbers

    • Update your home Reservation Address
    My favorite feature of using the Online Check-in Service is receiving text message and email alerts related to my room. This has allowed my family to receive our room number on the first day of our vacation, prior to our arrival, so we are able to skip the Front Desk and go straight to our room! Make sure you have your MagicBand with you as it is the key to enter your room. To use this service, simply enter your Mobile Number and Email on the Online Check-in Service page.

    If you don't receive your room number prior to your arrival, don't have your MagicBand or you would like to visit the Front Desk anyway, you can head to the Online Check-in Desk where a friendly Cast Member will be happy to assist you!

    Enjoy your trip and visit us again if you have any other questions!
