    I heard that check in has gone to online only. Is that true? We have a first timer with us this year and really wanted her to have the fun of the First Time button. Do they still have those? Can I still go to the desk to get her one? Thanks!

    Hi Sarah,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hEAR that you have an upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with someone who is visiting for the first time!

    Although we do strongly encourage online check-in, you may still stop by the front desk of your resort hotel to pick up a celebratory button! We also picked some up at Guest Relations at a theme park on our last visit because we had forgotten to get them at our resort hotel. 

    There are lots of special ways to make this first visit memorable. If you have not done so already, make advanced dining reservations at unique restaurants. My family loves California Grill because the views of Magic Kingdom from the restaurant are spectacular. Consider also ordering some magic from Disney Floral & Gifts. Connect with a Dream Maker who can truly help you make an unforgettable memory!

    Remember to doublecheck My Disney Experience to be sure that all of your plans are linked. Practice your skills at wielding the Force if you plan to join the Resistance on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Make sure that you have Disney Park Pass system reservations and check the operational updates prior to your visit.

    Sarah, on our most recent visit in December, the Cast Members were spectacular and we had such an amazing time! I trust your visit will be just as wonderful. We cannot wait to welcome you back to a world of magic for your next Incredible Disney Day!

    Magic and memories,
