Checking in early

We are flying in from West Coast overnight and will check in on Thursday, Nov 15th around 8:00 AM. Is there anything we can do so that the room can be ready earlier than 3:00 PM. We don't have any specific room request. We have booked Royal Room Standard view room.
- Will checking in online help? Does it ask for what is the expected time of arrival?
- Will sending a fax few days before help in any way?

Just do online check-in and most likely your room will be ready; 3 pm is just the latest time. I have never waited that long.

Like MissyTara said, if you do online check-in and let them know your arrival time, more than likely your room will be ready. I've done online check-in for my family both 2009 and 2011 and when we arrived around 10am, our rooms were ready.

We almost always do early checkin (as early as 7 am!) and we've only had to wait at Boardwalk. Otherwise we've gotten our rooms first thing in the morning.

Mickey ice cream bars

Does Riverside Mill sell Mickey ice cream bars? We arrive early evening and will be eating dinner there. My kids would love to start off the trip that night with a Mickey ice cream bar.

The chocolate covered ones with the ears? No, they tend to be sold mostly by the outdoor vendor carts in the parks.

Online check in for connecting rooms?

Last year, we didn't do online check in. It worked out fine as when we arrived there was virtually no line and we got the area we requested. This year we are traveling with the ILs, and we have requested connecting rooms (royal rooms, garden view). MIL wants to go ahead and do online check in for her room.

Do you think it would be better to wait and we both check in onsite since we are requesting connecting rooms or should we go ahead and both do online check in? I had also planned on faxing in our request for connecting rooms tomorrow.

Just moved my vacation for August 2013 from CBR to POR. Really wanted a Royal Room but none available with my bounceback offer...bummer. I requested mansions and paid for water view.

Haven't been be Port Orleans since 2002 when we stayed on the French Quarter side, when it was still Port Orleans.

We are booked at POR under the stay/play/dine promo for visit number 3 from Jan 29 to Feb 12! Although, I am really considering changing to off-site. It just sooo annoys me that we haven't gotten a pin for free dining when there are so many floating around out there. Free dining would save us another $740.

I think pins are just luck of the draw - we never received one even thought we went every year for 7 years - now we usually get one every year or so. Have you called and asked if there is a pin associated with your name? That happened to me once - I called to book a stay and the CM told me I had a pin attached to my name. Sending pixie dust for a free dining pin

I got them at RM when we were there in September, not sure if it's an everyday thing or not
