A recent upgrade to the My Disney Experience earlier this year brought new features to guests like mobile ordering and PhotoPass photo alerts. Today a brand new feature is being unveiled: Online Check-In.
When guests stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel they will be able to use this new service on the My Disney Experience mobile app. It will expedite arrival and give guests flexibility to customize their experience. The feature enables Guests to start the check-in process up to 60 days before their arrival, bypassing the need to visit the front desk. So as soon as guests set foot in Walt Disney World their vacation is all set to begin. Guests complete their check-in by unlocking their room, when it is ready, using the MagicBands sent to them prior to their arrival.
This new feature will allow guests to make room requests, add credit card information and authorize charges, submit an estimated arrival time to help prompt room access, receive a notification when their room is ready and more. It should be noted that room requests are not guaranteed and guests must provide consent to receive notifications.
Guests can begin the check-in process up to 60 days in advance but can also be done even just minutes before, even as their riding on Disney’s Magical Express to the resort.
Don’t worry, front desk and concierge cast members will still be available at all resort hotels to assist guests at their leisure for the duration of their stay.
To take advantage of the Online Check-In service and other features, be sure to download the latest version of My Disney Experience, now available in the App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.
