    We are scheduled to arrive at Caribbean Beach Resort March 6. How far in advance do I need to “check in” on the MDE app?

    Hi Dawn! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is almost here! My favorite thing about this Disney Resort hotel is direct access to the Disney Skyliner. It is quickly becoming a favorite mode of transportation for my family. I hope you have plans to take a few rides on the colorful gondolas during your visit!

    Now would be a great time to complete your Online Check-In. I usually complete Online Check-In months in advance, then update it if needed. Even though your trip is very close now, you can still complete Online Check-In with details including your estimated time of arrival, select room requests, communication preferences, housekeeping options, and even put a credit card on file that can be used for any charges made to your hotel account. I recommend entering a mobile phone number to receive text messages so you can be notified instantly when your room is ready. You'll even receive your room number via text, as well as a map of the Disney Resort hotel to aid you in locating your room easily! It is one of my favorite Online Check-In features!

    I hope this helps with your last-minute planning, Dawn! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
