Checking In after Midnight

We leave tomorrow for our family trip to the World!

My sister has a room only reservation that has a one night balance. She plans to pay it when she checks in.

We will not be arriving at Disney until around 1am

I am wondering if she has a balance, and midnight rolls around and she has not checked in, if the system will cancel her reservation?

Thanks!

We've arrived that late, or very close to midnight.

I would recommend two things: Call the reservation center and have it noted on the reservation that you will be arriving after midnight.

Check in online in advance and note your arrival as midnight (I don't think you can go past midnight on the online check-in).

You could also call that day and let them know again, in case all the other info was lost.

It will be fine. The one thing that happened on our late check-in was that the front desk person "forgot" to run the credit card for our room balance, so instead, they just charged it to the room the next day. So the first time I tried to charge dinner to the room it was disallowed because we were over our limit. That made me panic since that meant that someone else had used our charging privileges. I had to spend time on the phone clearing it up and I was very annoyed but the rep on the phone charged it to the card and took us back to zero.

Not likely, but if she didn't do online check in (giving them her arrival time) she might want to give them a call to have that time noted on her reservation.

She noted post midnight arrival, so it sounds like she will be fine.

Thanks!

I have arrived at 2 am before. It was fine. Very nice to be the only person in the lobby.

When your sister booked her room only reservation the deposit was equivalent to the first night's room rate so she's already paid for that night. The balance for the rest of the nights will be due when she checks in. Arriving that late I would call and have it noted on her reservation.

When we did online checkin the times of arrival went well past midnight. That was for a reservation back in feb of 2013 and things with online checkin change all the time, but that might still be the same.

we have checked in after midnight often. We never had a problem.
Rollover at Disney resorts is at 6:00 am, I think?

I'm hoping we get there before we are the only people in the lobby, LOL!

My sister is staying 8 nights and only has one night left to pay. From the responses, it looks like she will be fine!

Leaving tomorrow by 3 pm! Packing, finishing up some work! So excited!

She will be fine. We have checked in many times after midnight without any problem. Checking in after midnight is technically the next day, but is considered the current day as far as reservations are concerned. Like Babsy posted, the computers don't roll over until 6 am the next day, so as long as she checks in prior to 6 am, she is fine.
