You spend less time at the Front Desk as they already have all your information on-hand. It's worked out great the times we have done it! In the coming months, it will tie-in more with MyMagic+ and add more benefits. :yay:

In theory, it should shorten the amount of time you spend at the window when you check in upon arrival. Your packet of information and KTTW's etc are printed up and ready for you. Your credit card info for charging back to your room is already entered also.

Good to know....I have never used online check in and am considering using it on my next trip.

I think I have read somewhere that some people do not like online checkin as depending on their assigned room, there may be difficulting switching to another when you arrive if you do not like location.

Has anyone experienced this?

It doesn't make it more difficult, but defeats the purpose of the quicker line. So if there are people in back of you in line who just want to grab there packet and go....and you decide that you don't like your room assignment, thus causing CM to have to go into the system and change everything and issue a new KTTW card....the people in back of you are not getting the benefit of the "quickness factor" because you did not grab your folder and go.

Exactly. So if you simply must have a certain room type or location, doing OLCI may not benefit you.
