What is the advantage on online check in?

My concern is we are travelling with several other families, one that we requested adjoining rooms with ... I am worried that we won't be able to re-iterate our request with online check in.
Also, we are doing split stay -- same resort (to get in on free dining) -- we want to request the same room for day 1 as day 2-9 and I also can't do that online either.
Can I still put a credit card for room charges?

What are advantages or disadvantages of online check in ?

We had a similar situation when traveling in February. We wanted to be close to our daughter's room, so we didn't do online check in. When we got there they searched for a room close to her room. It just took a little bit longer to check in by waiting until we got there.

You would add the credit card when you check in. You would also set the pin code then, too.

From our experience don't do the online checkin if you want adjoining rooms. It screwed us up last year. We weren't able to get them upon arrival and had to move two days later. No fun! You have a better chance without the online checkin. And it should save you a lot of aggravation.

Thanks for this tip! I was getting really frustrated because I have been unable to check in online and we will also need adjoining rooms so I think we will just wait until we arrive.
