    Hi Kirsten. Last week you mentioned the online check in process. I was wondering what that was and how it works because I have never heard of it. Thank you

    Hi Dean.

    I'd be happy to explain the Online Check-In process to you.

    If you haven't already done so, set up a profile at the Walt Disney World Website.
    Select Create an Account at the top left. If you already have a profile, or once you're set up, simply Log In in the top left corner under the WDW logo.

    Then, click on My Reservations, which is the 2nd tab over to the right, just after the orange suitcase icon. If your existing Walt Disney World Magic Your Way Hotel or Package Reservation doesn't appear, use the pop up window that says Retrieve Reservations to fill in your information and connect your details to your log in.

    Once you can see your reservations, you'll see a fun countdown in the top right corner saying " ... days until my vacation!" This is a fun reminder of your family's vacation countdown!

    Click on the My Disney Vacation tab and you'll see a few options in the drop-down menu, one of which will be Online Check-In. Online Check-In can be processed up to 10 days prior to your arrival at Walt Disney World and expedites your check-in process once you've arrived. One of the steps lets the Resort know what time to expect your party, and in your case, make note of an early arrival.

    Be sure to explore all the other handy planning tools, a tool to create free customized park maps which are sent to your home as fun keepsakes, and plenty of other great information available on the site. If you encounter difficulty connecting your Reservation to your profile, simply call a Vacation Package Cast Member at (407) 939-7675 and they can guide you through.

    Thanks for visiting again Dean.
    I hope you'll return soon with more great questions to make the most out of your family's Magical Walt Disney World vacation!
