    Hi! I keep reading about online check-in - should I do online check-in for our resort? Is there any advantage, and how soon can you check-in? Thanks so much for all the advice in our trip planning!! 2 weeks to go!!!

    Hi, Jessica! Yeah! Your trip is almost here! You may start the online check-in process up to 10 days in advance of your check-in date by signing in to the My Reservation section or by visiting the My Disney Reservation page. Online check-in speeds up the process once you arrive.  Upon arriving, the first thing you will need to do is find the Online Check-in counter. If you don't readily see the Online Check-in area, ask a Cast Member, and he or she will be happy to direct you to it.  Don't wait in the regular Check-in line.  You will only need to pick up your Resort Welcome Folder and Key to the World card(s). The Key to the World Card serves as your room key, park tickets, and dining card. Your Check-in process should proceed quickly because your information has already been provided during On-line Check-in.  Then, with your Key to the World card in hand, you can begin your day of fun in the parks.  If you have a special request for your accommodations, I would definitely check-in with a Cast Member upon arrival to try to secure the room I want. Otherwise, online check-in is the way to go!  Thanks for the Moms Panel love! Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
