Heads up re: PAT times and MCO Hyatt stay

Hi all! Just a quick heads up on PAT times if you're staying at the MCO Hyatt.

I stayed up until midnight last night to complete my online check in, to choose an early PAT, ensuring an early boarding number based upon lots of advice out there on the DISboards about this. I know at one point there was a cruise check in for guests right at MCO, but that no longer exists (not to mention, it wouldn't apply fo us Canadians!).

If booking your stay with the Hyatt at the MCO Airport through Disney (as they have a "special partnership" to assist with port transfers), please note that it will be treated as a WDW Hotel/Resort, and will therefore, not allow you to choose a PAT. You'll just need to ensure that you are signed up for the earliest shuttle and will receive your Boarding Number based upon your check in at the port.

Wish I knew this earlier...thought I was beating the system by signing on early and staying up late ...only to be told I couldn't get my boarding number or PAT time arranged. Guess it makes sense though, as who knows what bus you will get on from the Hyatt (although I hear the first one leaves approx. around 9:30ish).

This might work differently for persons who do not book the MCO Hyatt through Disney themselves, as they only ask for your airline arrival time (or you can say you're driving if you're not taking Disney Cruise Buses).

Hope this helps for other cruisers thinking about your online check in for your cruise.

If anyone else has some good advice on this as well...please feel free to comment.

Have a Magical Day!

Note this is an old thread.

Thank you for posting this and could I ask you, could you re post it in the main forum not trip reports as few people will see it here.


I have described what you have posted many many times and been told by a few that I was wrong.

Yes some people posting here have said that and. Misinformed people. I was shouted down myself.

Thank you.

Best to ask in the main forum as this is an old thread.
