    LOVE the panel! Just wondering, if we use the on-line check in do we still have a chance to receive a room upgrade once we arrive at the resort or if hoping for an upgrade is it best to wait until arrival to begin the check in process? 62 days to go! :-)

    Hello Anne!  I honestly don't think online check-in will hurt your chances for an upgrade.  I used online check-in during my September vacation and although I reserved a standard studio room at Bay Lake Towers, I was assigned to a room with a Space Mountain view.   Before I knew that, I did ask if a one bedroom had become available (I was willing to pay the difference) and it had not.  So even though you are using the online check-in feature, you still have the ability to speak with a cast member for potential upgrades upon arrival at your resort.

    I would recommend taking advantage of online check-in as it does save time when you reach your resort.  If you are able to secure an upgrade, it's just a matter of reprogramming your room keys.

    Enjoy your vacation!  Diane
