    I love doing the online check-in a few days before my trip. Does my hotel room have to be paid in full for me to be able to use the online check-in? I have a room only reservation. Thank you! :)

    Hi Kathryn!

    This is a great question and the answer is "no".  You can use online check-in with a room only reservation and you don't have to pay for your stay in full to do so.  It would be just like checking-in at the front desk but you are doing some of the paperwork online ahead of time.  Then you just complete the process at the hotel and it is much quicker than if you hadn't done online check-in.  I think online check-in is definitely the way to go!  Most resorts will have a line at the front desk for those who did online check-in and a line for those who didn't.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and please write back with more questions!
