    hi Jo,i am international visitor and want to know,is it better to do check in online or should we wait until we get the united states to do the check in?will be leaving in 6 days to the states,staying at cabin FW, thanks

    Hi Arliani,

    What a fantastic part of the world you live in, I hope you love visiting America and Walt Disney World!

    I haven't actually used the online check in process yet as I haven't been to WDW since it's introduction but I can't wait to use it for my next trip. I have been told though that it's extremely easy to use and can save time on arrival as instead of joining the general queue you get to go to a separate desk where your room keys will be waiting for you. I would imagine you will have an extremely long flight from Indonesia so any time saved will be very welcome. You can check-in up to 10 days in advance, if you have booked directly with Disney then go to if you have booked through a third party then use to start the online check-in process.

    If you have problems using the online system don't worry though as in all my trips to Disney I have never had more than a 5 minute wait to check-in at my resort and then the process has only taken about another 5 minutes.

    Have a fantastic trip,
