    Hey there Debbie and welcome to planDisney!

    You've got one magical week left until you're making merry at The Most Magical Place on Earth. If you're anything like me, at this point your vacation is the only thing occupying your thoughts. While you're prepping that turkey and packing those bags I've got one more thing for you to add to your list of things you're thankful for. Online Check-In Service!

    You don't have to wait for another second to use the Online Check In Service at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. If your reservation is already linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can check in right now from your mobile device via the My Disney Experience app. You'll receive an update when your room is ready and be able to move into your home away from home with no fuss. 

    Pro-tip: When using Online Check-In be sure to give an estimated time of arrival. While the official check-in time for a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is 3 PM, I've been blessed with plenty of pixie-dusted early check-ins when there's availability.  

    Debbie, I'm wishing you all the best as you take in the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
