    Is there a way to find out your room number before you arrive to the WDW resort? Just so we don't have to deal with any issued at 10 pm when we check in. The day before travel maybe, is it available?

    Hi Sara,

    Good news! With online check-in and an active MagicBand, you can skip the front desk entirely if you wish and head straight to your Walt Disney World resort room. 

    When you complete online check-in, it will give you the option to get a text with your room number when it is available. You won't get the text until the day of your arrival, but I like getting that notification while we're on the road toward Walt Disney World or, if we arrive early, while we're in the parks.

    Once you reach your resort, you can stop at the desk for your welcome package. Or you can go straight to your room since your MagicBand also acts as your room key. (Any active MagicBand tied to your My Disney Experience account should work.)

    We love this benefit, especially for late arrival times. 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Your magical vacation is just around the corner. Enjoy every minute!
