    My family of 9 are checking into Port Orleans Riverside in a few days We have 3 rooms reserved. What are the advantages of pre check in? Would we be more likely to get rooms near each other if we check in upon arrival?

    Hi Catherine! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! In just a few days, you and the gang are arriving during The World’s Most Magical Celebration at Walt Disney World Resort. Create a group scavenger hunt looking for the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues located throughout all four theme parks. You can find everyone’s favorite warm hug-loving snowman, Olaf, at EPCOT.

    Being from Louisiana, I adore the nod to my home state at  Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Enjoy some of the unique activities of your resort, such as campfire on de' Bayou, Movies Under the Stars, or Surrey Bike Rentals. Take advantage of your exclusive resort benefits. This includes my favorite 30 minutes Early Theme Park Entry allowing you to beat the crowds.

    You should definitely take advantage of pre-check-in. You can do this either by logging into your My Disney Experience account online or through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Online look under "My Plans" or through the app "Future Plans." Follow the "Start Check-In Now" tab which will allow you to enter information such as your phone number, credit card, housekeeping preferences, and arrival time. By completing this ahead of time, you will get a text message when your room is ready with your room number. You can even unlock your door with the mobile app allowing you to skip the front desk.

    Because your arrival is pending, I am suggesting you call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to make your adjoining room request. This simply means your party's rooms will be near each other. Wait times have been rather long so try calling either early or late in the day. Alternatively, you can use the chat feature online or through the mobile app. Requests are not guaranteed, but the Cast Members will do their very best to accommodate you.

    Have a Magical vacation! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your vacation question. We are always here to help.

    Keeping it Magical,
