    Online check-in or in person? Have read about the check-in being special for young kids. We are coming in early, checking in then heading to park for morning emh's. thinking online is the way to go. Thoughts?


    I am a big fan of using the Online Check In system. It is just a great time saver. And if you are not happy with something on your reservation, like the room location that was picked out for you, you can still ask for a change when you arrive. 

    As to any special experiences for kids, like the warm greeting and time to work on crafts at the Polynesian, Online Check In does not preclude you from doing that. So I see no down side related to that. 

    Specific to your plans, you absolutely want to speed things along with the Online Check In since that will mean more time in the parks on that first day!

    BOTTOM LINE: Online Check In speeds things up, and I don't see that taking away from the arrival experience for you or your kids. 

    Have a magical vacation!
