Our last 3-4 stays we used on line check in and didn't really see additional speed to the process at all...CM still goes over lay out, amenities, verifies identities, credit card on file... no different than regular check in.... only reason we use it, we like arriving very early and hope our room would be ready, but that hasn't been the case, so we feel its all the same either way ...

Online check in desk is NOT the place to be doing that. It is supposed to be faster and you would be holding up the line.
I can only state my experience.. perhaps I have been lucky I was in & out of there in minutes not holding up anything

Nope...I've had the same experience....twice! I have done online check-in both in 2009 and 2011. We always arrive early (9am) and, both times, our room was ready.

That's why I prefer online check-in, because we arrive early and want to put our stuff away before we head to DTD or relax at the pool.

As for a confirmation, I don't think I ever got one. Just completed the steps and then awaited our arrival day.

Is it weird that I tried to click a like button on this? ... ... LOL

Thanks. I guess I need to just find out for myself! Either way it's so exciting to try new things! I even started to get myself pumped for MagicBands which I used to be on the fence about. Thanks for the advice!
