Changing ressie after online checkin?

I have a waterview room booked at CR, but that was my third choice room category so I have been calling periodically to see if a standard or preferred room (my first two choices) opens up.

In the meantime, thanks to the new online checkin policy of 60 days out, I can check in online.

Should I wait to check in on line since I am still trying to change room categories? Or would it have no effect?

Thanks for any advice!

That is an excellent question!

But just to be safe, if I were you, I would not do the online check-in.

You could probably change the day before if you wanted to. Online checkin does not lock you into a particular room. All it does is allow the resort to get your paperwork prepped in advance. And they only do the paperwork a day or so before you get there.

If you have specific room requests on your reservation, I wouldn't recommend online checkin anyway. Not because it might affect the chances of you getting your request (it won't) but because having to ask for a different room if your request isn't granted (and then needing to redo all the paperwork) just defeats the purpose of online checkin.

Looks like waiting is my best bet. Thank you!
