I feel like this is kind of a dumb question but....why do people check in online 10 days prior to arriving. if it wasn't for this great site, i wouldn't even of known you can do it! we will be arriving we late at nite, possiblely early morning. Is there a benefit to doing this??? We leave in 11 days! Yay!!!

It's the best thing. You get in pick up you folder with the keys map and get out. Everything u do in the building is done prior to arrival. It easy and great. Do it. You will be glad you did - 5disneylovers  1144.5 #5 5:16PM
Ive never done it but apparently it saves you time once you arrive? Ive never had to wait long when i arrive at my hotelbut i guess if theres a big crowd when you arrive and you have checked in prior 10 days ago, i suppose it does ssave you time! - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #100 2:03PM
I did online check-in a few days ago. I've never done it before, so we'll see. Last trip, it did take a long time to check-in when we arrived at the resort. There was a long line, then we had to give the credit card info, wait for the computer, get our room assigned, wait for the computer, wait for the cards/room keys to print, etc. So, we'll see if this time goes faster... 6 more days!! - BagGal  317.2 #25 2:19PM
Hi and that's not a dumb question , basically it saves time when you arrive , I've done a couple of times but I'm one of those annoying people that like to see exactly where my rm is lol and it never really takes me a long time to check in when I get there , but I guess for some it adds to the excitement of going so whatever your preference is ... And yay for 11 days:) - tracsant  1461.6 #2 2:25PM
The first time we went I did it took only a few min to check in my daughterinlaw didn't took about 20 mins to check in so we do it ever time we go - jeri814  150.2 #58 2:42PM
Wow! We didn't do online check-in last time and it took almost 40 min to check in!! Glad we did online check-in this time!! Woohooo!!! :) - BagGal  317.2 #25 3:01PM
We do it every trip. Never had an issue, always speedy check-in, and we always site-see the resort grounds afterwards. By the time we are finished, our luggage is magically in our room waiting for us! πŸ™Œ - mrsincredible  1125.9 #6 2:51PM
πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Awwww yeahhhhh!!! - BagGal  317.2 #25 3:01PM
We usually online check in, and usually is fairly quick in line, except last time we arrived a little earlier than planned but could get into the park while waited. Then our park ticket/room key allowed us to get into our room once they texted us our room number. So I guess it does make things a little quicker - TinkTinkTink  253.8 #33 2:54PM
I checked in at AKL 10 days prior and as soon as I got there they were waiting for me in the entrance with my room key and all the info they give u when u check in. The only thing that was not ready was my room but I only waited 1 hr to get my room. - yessy  224.9 #39 2:59PM
I've done it on the few occasions I've stayed at WDW, I've loved it. Simple. Easy. In out, off to the pool...or nearest pool bar. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #3 3:08PM
I've never done it but I'm glad it's an option. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 3:30PM
I tried it this year for the first time and it was wonderful. We had 2 rooms 8 guests. We arrived on the magical express at about 11am and was at Epcot by 1230. Our rooms weren't ready but all the room Keys with our tickes were and when We got home from the park@ 1030 our bags were in our rooms. Very nice. Have a good trip - mmddgp  792.4 #8 4:39PM
Saved us a ton of time at check in, also we arrived way before "check in time" but our rooms were ready since they knew we would be arriving early due to online check in - Pixarprincess  544.4 #366 5:24PM
Thank god we did it for our last trip! We had a group of 30 and our reservations were all screwed up! Those of us who did online got things fixed ahead of time, those who didn't spent a lot of time at the check in counter! - timonT  399.7 #19 6:24PM
