    We are staying Club Level at the Wildnerness Resort later this month...What are the advantages to checking in online? How do we get our park passes and dining plan if we do that?

    When you do online check in, the resort prints and gets your documents ready ahead of time. It speeds up the check in process (usually). That's really the only advantage.

    Sometimes people have had greater luck with their rooms being available earlier since it will ask you what time you'll be coming.

    If you do online check in, you still have to visit the front desk and advise them that you are there in person. There will be a separate line at the front desk that is just for people that did online check in. That's where you will get your tickets/room key/dp credits - the same as regular check in.

    But if you're staying CL don't you already have a separate check in area?

    Yes you do. And the packets have always been made for me so it's not necessary to do online.
