    Hello Connie!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope we can help you plan a magical visit to the place where dreams come true.

    Online check-in for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel is available 60 days before the arrival date. This convenient service allows you to start your check-in process from the comfort of your home, and may reduce registration time upon arrival. When you use online check-in you simply provide information that is normally requested during a standard check-in process. Since your MagicBands will be shipped to your home, you can go straight to the parks to enjoy your day upon arrival, and return later in the day directly to your room. The room number is sent to you by message or e-mail once it is ready.

    To start online check-in simply log in to your My Disney Experience account, move the mouse cursor over the My Disney Experience icon and select “My Reservations and Tickets” on the drop-down menu. Once you find your reservation on the next screen, click on the “Online Check-in” blue button under your confirmation number to start the process. You can also check in using the My Disney Experience mobile app, and even update your check-in information later in case something changes.

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Connie! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
