    I have the MIL Salute exch. certs. I linked them to our bands. Staying @ Disney Resort, military rate. I know that we have to take our certs to a ticket counter before entering park. Can we use online check in and skip the hotel desk? 800 # did not know

    Hi Jeffrey!

    Between the amazing discounts on theme park tickets and special rates on rooms, the Walt Disney World Resort really knows how to show their appreciation for members of the U.S. Military!  There is even a discounted rate on Memory Maker!

    Online Check-In is a great way to get your Walt Disney World Resort vacation started without having to wait in line at the Front Desk!  Even Guests taking advantage of the incredible rates on select Walt Disney World Resort Hotel rooms for members of the U.S. Military can use Online Check-In.  Just go to your reservation on your My Disney Experience account online or on the My Disney Experience mobile app, click on "Start Check-In," and follow the instructions!  

    That being said, since you are taking advantage of the great military discounted room rate, you will still need to stop by the Front Desk at some point during your trip to show your valid U.S. Military ID to make sure you keep that rate.  Also remember, if you don't have your MagicBands mailed to you in advance, you will need to stop by the Front Desk to pick them up.  I always like exploring the resort right when I get there, so stopping by the Front Desk is just a part of that adventure!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
