Checkout/back in question

I have booked a Keys to the Kingdom tour on the morning we are suppose to check out/ check back in. Is that going to be a problem?
We have to "check out" and back in at CSR because our stay is 17 days and our package is only 14. I just fear that we will have to switch rooms or something

Just remind the person at the front desk at check in for the first night that you have a continuing reservation to make sure you have been blocked into the same room.

Or, have you considered, changing it up and making the first reservation 13 days and the second one 4...this way, your check in/out day isn't that same day?

Also, if you have not done so already, make sure Disney has that noted the reservation number on both as a continuing reservation.

I don't think the tour has any relationship with room reservations does it?

Make sure you put a request on the reservation to keep the same room and have the 2 reservations linked. Also, as the pp said, when you check in for the first reservation, tell the CM that you have a continuing reservation and would like to keep the same room if possible. It isn't guaranteed that you won't have to change rooms, but the CM will do everything he/she can to accommodate you.

I have to check out/check back in at a resort fairly frequently. It is always possible you will have to move. However, I think it really helps to avoid a move if you do a few things:

I ask the CM to briefly mention it in the requests when I book, including reservation #'s.
When checking in, I mention it.
The afternoon/evening before I will check out/back in, I go down to the check in desk to make sure all is well.
I've never had to move. They tell me I can come down after 7am and get my new keys. It's really easy.

And of course, make sure you book the exact same room type for both stays. They probably aren't going to go for someone staying in a more expensive "water view room" if the guest selected "standard" for their last two nights.

Ok I'll remind them. I think I will call them and let them know ahead of time.
I didn't want to change the length of my package because it will save me money on my Magic Your Way park tickets.

I'm just worried about missing the tour if there is a problem with the check out/in and possibly changing rooms.

Thanks. I will call and do that.

Ok thanks. I will keep on top of reminding them to avoid any problems.

I don't know what time the tour is, but you can check in as early as 6 am, which is when he computers roll over for the day.
