Online Checking and King Bed Request

We will be staying at ASSp. We always do online checkin, but REALLY want a king bed. It's noted on our ressie, but I know they cannot guarantee anything. Will we have a better chance of a king doing online checkin, or just waiting til we get there? We will be arriving late, like almost midnight, so lines shouldn't be long.
Thanks

Online check-in has nothing to do with requests; I would wait until you arrive at the resort since it is going to be so late. No reason to speed up the process.

I wouldn't bother with online check-in, either, if I were checking in at midnight. It would save you a minute or two at best.

The purpose of online check-in is to shorten the time you spend standing at the check-in desk. Your paperwork and keys are prepared ahead of time, and you get to stand in a separate line. But at midnight, I'd be surprised if there's any line at all at the front desk.

In practice, here's what the difference will be:

Online check-in: You walk up to the desk, show ID, the CM will give you your packet and keys and send you on your way.

Regular check-in: You walk up to the desk, show ID, the CM prints up your paperwork and keys and sends you on your way.

Either way, it won't affect your requests at all. If you don't get your king room, ask the CM checking you in if they can see if there's one available.

I've stayed at the Allstar resorts, the only time I've gotten a king bed is when I was given a HA room. I am not sure if the "regular rooms" have a king size bed.

It is typical for all the resorts in value and moderate categories; there are king bed rooms, and some are HC. Accessible, but not all.
