Early Check in at Disney?

What's the earliest they will usually let you check in to your room? I'll be going in late June if that matters. Thanks!!

You can check in as soon as the computers turn over for the day which is usually 6 a.m. Your room likely won't be ready then but you can get your Key to the World card and stash your stuff with bell services before heading out to the park for the day.

We have NEVER done on line check in (nor would we) and...

Our room had always been ready with our arrival ranging from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm.

There have been many guests who have done on line check on and there room has not been ready.

I think it really just depends on how crowded the resort is, what room you have been assigned, and what time the guest before you left. We have never done on-line check in and we have arrived many years after 5:00 pm but we have also arrived before noon and our room has always been ready but I know each trip this could be different. But it is great to know that you can store your luggage their and head to the parks. Also we always arrive park ready, we wear the shoes, clothes, and have the backpack ready.

I've always done on-line check in and arrived around 10am and the room has been ready. This time though I'm not doing on-line check in, so we'll see how it goes!

We're pretty new at this, just curious, why would you NEVER do online check in? We're going in August and I need all the good info I can get

We arrive at POR in 9 days and did online checkin yesterday. Had only heard good things about this option so am surprised someone would say they would NEVER do this. It saves time, what's the issue?
