Online Walt Disney World Resort check-in began back in early 2009, and with the rollout of 'MyMagic+', Disney is enhancing the online check-in system in the near future.
Leveraging the new 'My Disney Experience' site, the check-in window will be increased to 60 days before arrival, up from 10 days. Guests will also be able to set a pin number for the 'Touch to Pay' system via the RFID MagicBand. Finally, all guests will be required to login to the 'My Disney Experience' site to complete the online check in.
Online check-in aims to streamline the arrival process for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Upon arrival at their resorts, guests visit a special welcome location where their room keys and other registration material are waiting. Disney cast members are also available to provide additional information and answer questions.
