    How exactly does online check-in work?

    Hi, TaLeah!  Thanks for stopping by with another great question!

    If you're like me, then you'll want to pack as much pixie-dusted fun into your Walt Disney World Resort vacation as possible.  Online Check-In service is the thingamabob that does the job when you don't want to miss a minute of magic on your arrival day!  By allowing you to skip the front desk when you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, Online Check-In saves you time.  This service has also helped with physical distancing during the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort.

    You can complete the Online Check-In process by logging into your My Disney Experience account either on the Walt Disney World website or using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  Once you're logged into your account, go to "My Plans" and click on "Start Check-In Now."  You will then need to answer a series of questions about your arrival time, contact information, and any room requests that you might have.  You can provide your mobile phone number during Online Check-In, and when your resort hotel room is ready on your arrival day, you will receive a text notification.  There's no need to check-in at the front desk, simply head to your room and unlock the door using your MagicBand or My Disney Experience mobile app.  It's as easy as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!
