    Hi there, Alanna!

    I’m delighted to welcome you to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question for us today.

    How exciting for you! You'll be headed to The Most Magical Place on Earth in just a couple of days. I hope you’ve packed all your essentials! If you need any help, my fellow Panelists and I have come up with a list of Top 10 Packing Tips to enhance your trip! And hooray for staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! Nothing beats staying inside the magic! I do hope you check out all the activities your Disney hotel offers; head to the front desk during your stay to ask for a schedule. 

    Alanna, I love the convenience of Online Resort Check-In! By checking in online, you’re able to drop your bags off at Bell Services to hold and play at the parks or shop and eat at Disney Springs until your room is ready. The best part is, you can opt to be notified when your room is ready through text message or email, and then you can go straight to your room!

    To complete the Online Resort Check-In process, open up your My Disney Experience Mobile app and click on the three horizontal lines located at the bottom right-hand of your screen. Next, you will want to select “My Plans,” which will direct you to a page where all your plans are displayed. When you locate your Disney Resorts Collection reservation under your check-in date, you should see the “Start Check-In Now” option. Once you select this, you will begin the process of checking in online. It will prompt you to fill out your phone number, should you choose to receive text messages (messaging and data rates may apply), select your Resort Arrival time, and whether or not you’d like Housekeeping Service. After clicking “Next,” you can add a room location request and then link a credit card to your account while creating a hotel account PIN. After reading the terms and conditions, once everything looks good, you can click on “I Agree” and then “Complete,” and ta-daaaa! You’re done!

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Alanna! Have an enchanting time.
