    Need to do online check-in 24 hrs in advance of my flight's departure & am trying to find hours/locations for business centers within the resorts. Last year I paid for an hour of computer use only to return to a BC and find it already closed.

    Hi Melinda! There's no need to pay for time in the hotel business center just to do online check-in for your flight. If you visit your resort front desk or Guest Services at the Disney parks or Downtown Disney, the castmember can check-in for you online and print your boarding passes.

    Also, if you have a smart phone, you can use it to check-in online. I usually fly Southwest to and from Disney World, so I have to check-in online 24 hours before my flights to receive boarding group assignments. I generally use my iPhone to check-in, and then I obtain the boarding passes from the Magical Express or print them at the Southwest kiosk at the airport. (If you're flying Southwest, they also have an Early Bird check in option that allows you to pay $10 and have them automatically check you in for your flight so you don't have to worry about doing it on vacation.)

    If you do find yourself needing to visit a Business Center for some reason, the hours vary depending on the resort, but typically they're open during traditional workday hours.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
