    What time can we check in to the Boardwalk Villas?

    Welcome Home, Vicki!

    Thanks for swinging by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are going to love Disney’s BoardWalk Villas! The Resort is gorgeous, but the location is perfection! Fifteen minutes in one direction is the Planet of Batuu, and ten minutes walk in the other is the fabulous Epcot! You are also steps away from one of the Disney Skyliner hubs, which can take you on a fantastic gondola ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or visit other Resort hotels.

    Check-in for all Disney Vacation Club properties is 4 p.m. But! You can “check-in” weeks before your vacation! Sixty days before your vacation, you can either check-in online or use the My Disney Experience app. During online registration, you can add a credit card for incidentals, make room requests, and more. What I love is that you don’t have to stop at the hotel on arrival day. Instead, head straight to all the fun, and once your room is ready, you will get a welcome ping via the app (or if you set it up via text to your mobile phone). You will also find your room number and a digital map of Disney’s BoardWalk Villas to guide you to your room. Then, last but not least, you can use the app to open your hotel room door! (The Mouse has made it super easy!)

    If you want to talk with a Cast Member, they are happy to assist you 24 hours a day at your Resort Front Desk. Did you know that once again, you can use the app? All you have to do is tap the “Call Resort” feature, and it will connect you directly to your hotel. Easier than saying, “bibbidi, bobbidi, boo!”

    Vicki, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. ChEARs to a magical vacation!
