Online Check-In Service, a complimentary service designed to simplify and streamline guest arrivals is now available to guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Disney Vacation Club resorts. Within 10 days of your arrival dates, you can now provide check-in information, advise the resort of your arrival time and request room preferences (although those cannot be guaranteed). You can also register the names of all the people in your party and provide a credit card to cover charges at the resort hotel. Upon arrival at your resort, you visit a special welcome location where room keys and other registration material are waiting. Disney Cast Members are also available to provide additional information and answer questions. Meeting professionals can also arrange private group check-in at a Disney resort convention center or other locations. For more information about the new Online Check-In Service or to make a resort reservation, call 407-W-DISNEY or your local travel agent or visit disneyworld.com

why did i put this here, you ask? because we're awesome enough to stay at a resort where this advantage is included. oohhhh yeeeeeahhh! :afro:

haha, and i know ya already knew about this, but i wanted all the info on our board so it wouldn't be forgotten. =p

found this, i'm thinking it's the official page that allows you to check-in online.

also found some reviews on the whole process!

from the disboards:

I've used it and its WONDERFUL! We walked right up...keys and room were both ready at 1145 am!

I did online check in last April for our stay at the Wilderness Lodge. My check in took about 5 minutes. There was no line at all when we arrived. My father-in-law was with us at the time. He did not use the online check in system. He was in line to check in for 30-45 minutes. I found no cons to doing online check in. I even got an upgraded room on this trip!

Our first experience using online check in was a breeze and we were the only ones in line. However, our room was not ready and I noted on the reservation that we were arriving early and we'd be arriving around 12:30pm. It was not ready until the very last minute around 4pm. So just keep this in mind that even though they ask when you're arriving it does not guarantee your room will be ready.

we had no issues...and I LOVED not standing in line. If you needed something changed...yes they can do that! I think its totally worth it!

It definitely saves you a lot of time in the check in line. Even if the online check in line is the same length as the regular one, it's going to move a lot quicker. And you can already have your room charging set up, so you're all ready to go - just get your packet and go find your room. -- Another possible benefit is that it may help your room be ready when you get there. Online check in asks you what your expected check in and check out times are. Though it's not confirmed, it makes sense that if they're asking for this information, they have a reason for it. I think they try to match up people who are leaving and checking in based on this times to help you get your room faster. For instance, if I tell them that I plan on arriving at 10 am, they'll match me with someone who has said in online check in or someone on the ME who is checking out at 9 am that day and assign me to their room.

Just wanted to share our experience. We booked with AAA and still used this service for the first time last September. Another poster mentioned you just need to create an account online with www.waltdisneyworld.com and then go to My Disney Vacation and you'll see there is a link for Online check-in. You'll need to have your reservation number available and the rest is easy!

I was just thinking about whether to do online check-in this trip... but it sounds like it's better than it was a year ago (we waited and people who didn't do online check-in seemed to be moving much faster & then we were given the wrong room - long boring story short, they fixed it quickly, but I was leaning towards not doing it this trip). Maybe I will do online check-in now.


last year I used online check for a stay at WL. arrived by car and the queue for online check in was as long as ordinary. two people ahead of me in the online queue asked a lot of questions and held up the queue substantially. Eventually the ordinary queue was cleared and they started calling over the people stuck in the online queue. when I got to the counter they had my pack ready to go - but they still went through every item handing the pieces of paper over 1 at a time and it took forever - no grabbing the pack and running for me!

Is that three separate reviews or just one? Looks like three separate ones.

Sounds pretty good, only downside being you might have to wait in a line, which you would have to do anyway, so we should definitely try it out at least.

oh weird, supposed to be 8 separate reviews.

and yeah i figure there's really nothing to lose.. not even time. if we're going to be waiting in line anyways, i'd rather it be for a quick packet and key than all the other things they'll already have the info for because we filled it all out online beforehand. know what i mean?

Haha oh, the first couple ones kind of read like they flow together.

Definitely, either way the worst that can happen is you wait in line. Plus we won't have to carry our luggage around as much.

Well, hopefully then we shouldn't have much trouble since it won't be as crowded.
