    Hi! Two questions. Part of my sisters Military Discount! Can I use online check-in knowing her military proof is needed? Planning to use bands from Nov.'14. Will we receive luggage tags and magnet with important dates? Thank You!

    Hi Jamie,

    First, please thank your sister for her service to our country.  

    That is a great question!  When you reserve a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Room with the special pricing for active duty and retired military, you can definitely take advantage of the online check-in service through your My Disney Experience account. In that process, you can also make any room requests, add your credit card for charging privileges, and estimate your anticipated arrival time to help MouseKeeping have your room ready for your arrival.  

    As a Guest using a military discount, you will not have a room assigned to you until you pop by the Check-In desk where your sister will provide her Military Identification. The great news is that if you have already completed the online check-in process, you can simply breeze through a special queue with a typically shorter wait.  Also, this is a fantastic opportunity for a Cast Member with a "Problem free philosophy'  to check your MagicBand to ensure that everything is linked properly. Within minutes, you should be on your way for your "Practically perfect" day.

    You should definitely keep your eye on your mailbox as your reservation should qualify for those Pixie Dusted luggage tags that are tucked inside your MagicBand box. You will also receive a booklet with more information on your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and tips to make the most of your vacation. The final page, which used to have a peel-away magnet, is now a regular page with important dates to keep in mind for Advance Dining Reservations and FastPass+ Reservations.  

    I hope that helps as you plan your incredible vacation! Thanks for stoppin' by!  

    Wishing you many magical memories,
