    Hi, can you tell me what the benefit is in checking in early? Are the lines really that long? Just curious. Thanks!

    Hi Cary!

    The benefit is really a shorter wait when you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Instead of waiting 15 minutes or more, your wait might be only 5 minutes.  To be honest, I've stayed in almost all of the hotels at Walt Disney World and the longest wait I've ever been in was about 30 minutes at one of the All Star resorts.  Typical wait in all of my travels (for when I didn't do online check-in) is about 15 minutes.

    Hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
