One of my favorite things to do prior to a Walt Disney World vacation is to do online check-in. Well, now Disney is allowing me to be able to participate in the online check-in process right from my smart phone!
Today, a new update was pushed out to the App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices and it allows Guests to check-in for their resort stay up to 60 days in advance of their vacation.
The process will therefore expedite the Guest’s arrival and will provide them with additional convenience nd flexibility. Guests who complete the online check-in process will be able to bypass the front desk when they arrive at the hotel, because they will be texted their resort room number. Guests who know which room they are staying in as soon as they arrive to their hotel will complete their check-in by unlocking their room, when it is ready, simply by using the MagicBands that sent to them prior to their arrival.
Don’t worry, if you have special room requests, you can still make them here. (Though, shameless plug, may I suggest that instead you consider using our Automatic Room Request to make your room requests instead. ;)) Ed.- If you plan to use TouringPlans’ room request tool, do not make requests through MyDisneyExperience. MDE will override a request made through TouringPlans.
When completing online check-in, you can also add your credit card information and authorize charges, submit your estimated arrival time, and sign up to receive notifications that your room is ready.
If you’re curious to learn more about this update, make sure you watch this video!
Will you use the Online Check-In via the My Disney Experience app going forward?
