    What is the latest possible you can complete your online Walt Disney World reservation check-in before your vacation begins?

    Hiya Leah! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    Oh boy! Your Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it! I'm excited to hear that you'll be staying in a Disney Resorts hotel during your visit! There is nothing quite like being a part of the magic for the entirety of your stay.

    When staying in a Disney Resorts hotel, you'll have the option to check in to your resort online using the My Disney Experience App. You'll have until the day of your arrival to do so. If you haven't completed the online check-in by the time you arrive, you will need to stop by the front desk of your resort to do so in person. I highly suggest taking care of this prior to your arrival, especially if you plan on arriving early on your check-in day. If there is a room that happens to be ready before the official check-in time, you may be able to access your room earlier in the day. You'll be notified by either a push notification, text message, email, or a combination of these three options. You can then head straight to your resort room without stopping by the front desk.

    I always complete the online check-in before arriving onsite. If there is a chance that my room can be ready before the promised time, I prefer to get my belongings in the room and get settled before beginning the rest of my day. You can also select preferences for your resort room when going through the process, so you'll have a better chance of getting a room that fits your needs the best.

    Leah, I hope you have a fantastic time during your upcoming visit! Stop back and see us anytime at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
