Online check in

Other than expediting the time it takes to get from the bus drop off point to your hotel room, what other benefits are there about online check ins. Can you pick your room from a list? Arrange to have your room close to friends?

Can you pick your room from a list? No

If you have specific room requests like wanting adjoining rooms, you would need to do this at the time of booking, or you would have to phone to make the request. There are only a few, common requests on a drop down list that can be made during online check in.

Disney assigns rooms some 3-5 days (reports vary) before you check in. If the location isn't to your liking, then you can request to have it changed based on availability.

If you want to have your room close to friends, call Disney with both reservation numbers and request to have a "traveling with" note put on the reservation.

I used on line check in because I have no requests and it's more important to me to have a room available when I get there around lunch. The online check in should be used for someone with little needs, hopes and desires. It's supposed to be for just walking up, showing ID, getting your packet and leaving.

somebody said they like to do the online check in because then you put the CC# in yourself and when you check in nobody handles your CC!
