All Disney-owned hotels at Walt Disney World participate in Disney'sOnline Check-In program. During Online Check-In, you will be asked to provide your credit card information and authorize charges, submit your estimated arrival time, and provide contact information to receive automated notification of your room status.

Online Check-In may be completed up to 60 days before your arrival. If you've checked-in online and provided a mobile phone number or email address, you will receive electronic information about your room availability and room number.

Guests living in the United States and a few other geographic areas, will have Magic Bands mailed to their home prior to their arrival. If you've completed Online Check-In and have your MagicBand, you may go straight to the room bypassing the lobby altogether.

Online Check-In can be completed on either the website or the My Disney Experience app (available for Apple or Android).
