    Hello. We will be visiting in early November staying at a Disney resort. Is it possible to check in online and go directly to the park and then to dinner at a different resort before going to our room? Is the paper parking pass still needed?

    Howdy Edward!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your questions with us!  Your vacation is “Just Around the Riverbend,” and I know you are excited!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is encouraging online check-in for all guests.  Upon arrival, you will be able to leave your luggage with bell service and head out for a great day at the theme park that you have chosen through the Disney Park Pass Reservation System.  Make sure to get your Advanced Dining Reservations 60-days before check-in.  With your advanced dining reservation on your My Disney Experience, you will easily be able to take the Walt Disney World transportation to your dining location.  When your room is available, you will receive a notification on your My Disney Experience with your room number and all the details you will need to get into your home away from home!  If you are traveling to a different resort for dinner, and you plan to drive your car, all you will need is your advanced dining reservation number.  With the My Disney Experience App, you genuinely have everything at your fingertips!

    I highly recommend familiarizing yourself and your party with the Mobile Food Order option on your My Disney Experience.  This feature is strongly encouraged to ensure an added level of safety for all guests.  I love the Mobile Food Order option.  Mobile Food Ordering makes ordering more accessible, quicker, and allows you more time to rest.

    November is a fantastic time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort!  To stay informed of all the new things that will be reopening before or during your upcoming trip, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  Also, if you have any more questions while you are planning, please come back to planDisney!

    We look forward to helping you again, Edward!

    See Ya Real Soon,
