    I am visiting with my family in May and we are staying in the Port Orleans Riverside. It is my girls first trip so I would like them to experience a Disney hotel check in. However if I don't check in online will I have to wait for ages? Thanks

    Hi David!

    I agree with you! While online check-in is super convenient, and a great perk for guests who have visited Walt Disney World often, I do miss the actual check-in process in the resort lobby.

    Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside is magical location and I'm sure your in-person check-in will be magical as well. Generally, since many guests take advantage of the online check-in option, the wait for a Cast Member at the lobby check-in is usually pretty low. Occasionally, during peak times or if Disney's Magical Express bus has just arrived, you'll see a slighter longer line. But, no worries, it'll move fast.

    While you're at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside be sure to plan some downtime to enjoy the resort's amenities. In addition to the pool, water slide, and evening campfire, the resort features an old fashioned fishing hole (catch and release, of course)! During your check-in, ask for a resort event calendar. It will help you keep track of all of the fun things happening around Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside!

    Enjoy your girls' first Walt Disney World vacation. I hope you'll bring them back to visit often!
