Check in online or at hotel?

Hey everyone! I've been hearing a lot about online check ins lately.
Just wondering if it's more convenient than checking in at the hotel?
What is the difference between the two?
Also, we are paying for a theme park view at Poly,
by checking in online will it know that we have paid for a specific view?
Any advice appreciated, thanks!

Online check in just allows you to add a credit card and indicate aa time of arrival. You still have to check in at the resort.

The resort will assign a room based on your reservation; you can request some type of location, but it needs to be attached to your reservation.

Online reservation was a breeze for us last November. It was fast and simple and I did not put a credit card on ours. We received room requests and everything.

We've done both ways several times and I've never had a better or more efficient experience using the online check in.. I'm not really sure what the purpose is..

Well then I think I'm gonna go with everyone here and use the online check in. It seems much more convenient and considering I'll be going to the parks on arrival day it will buy me some more time in the parks
