    Hello, In a few weeks I will be coming to my favorite place in the whole world. My question is regarding checking in to my resort through the My Disney Experience app.? Should I do so as soon as I can or should I wait until the day of?

    Hiya, Rick!

    Welcome to planDisney, friend! Well, what do ya know? We have something wonderful in common. Your favorite place in the world happens to be my favorite too. And this year is an amazing time to visit our happy place! The World's Most Magical Celebration is going strong. There are so many new and exciting things happening in all four theme parks right now. Two memorable nighttime spectaculars have been added to the daily schedule, Harmonious and Disney Enchantment. I hope you have the chance to see them both during your stay!

    It sounds like your planning is off to a great start. Downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app before your arrival is such a great idea. This way you arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth ready to plan on the go. You can check in to your Walt Disney Resort hotel at any time after making your reservation. I prefer to check in at least 30 days before arrival. Choosing when to complete your online check-in is a personal preference. This will not affect your room assignment or the time when the room is ready. But completing this step well in advance does give you peace of mind knowing that one more item is checked off your magical to-do list.

    And speaking of your magical to-do list, I want to add a quick reminder to make your Disney Park Pass reservations if you have not already done so. Each theme park requires a reservation in addition to a valid theme park ticket. This is such an amazing time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, so some dates fill up quickly. Don't delay, make your Park Pass reservations today. 

    I hope that your upcoming trip is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
