    Hi there! We are staying at the Beach Club Resort and have reserved a pool/lagoon view room. As we are coming from the UK, is it worth us doing the on-line check-in? Also, how best to request a room near to the entrance/exit door for EPCOT please?

    Greetings Claire! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel all the way from the United Kingdom. We are thrilled to have you stop by and share your great planning question about the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Disney's Beach Club Resort,
    and nearby Yacht Club Resort, are some of my favorites because of the short walk right into Epcot! There isn't an easier way to leave your hotel resort and be immersed in the magic of a theme park in only a matter of minutes. I usually like to go ahead and complete online check-in as it saves time once we get to the resort. As far as room requests go, I would call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations number listed on this Walt Disney World Resort Phone Directory and ask the Cast Member to make a note on your reservation for your preference. While they won't be able to guarantee it, they will reference the request when making your room selection and try their best to accommodate. 

    Have a wonderful stay, Claire! If you think of any other questions or concerns, please come back and let us know.
