Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to test a new check-in feature

Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to test a new check-in feature--

Have you ever waited in line to check in at a hotel and wished that the online check in that you did meant you could just arrive and not have to go through the check in process at the hotel?  Well that could be coming very soon to the Walt Disney World Resort using the MyMagic+ system.  

This month, a test will take place at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. This test involves a new potential service that could allow you to go directly to your hotel room once it is ready, without visiting the front desk. This test will be conducted for arrivals June 16-28, 2014 at the following Walt Disney World Resort hotels:
  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  • Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  • Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside
  • Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter
  • Disney’s Pop Century Resort
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas – Jambo House and Kidani Village

If you are staying at one of these Resort hotels and arriving on the dates above, you must first link your reservation on and confirm the shipping address to receive your MagicBands at home.  Disney will send an email before you arrive explaining the details and benefits of this test. 

In order to participate in this test, guests will need to use Disney online check-in service, provide their estimated arrival time, a credit card to be used for incidentals and other charges once they arrive, and contact information. Guests will also need to make sure to consent to receive email or text message alerts so they can receive notification of their room number when it is ready.

If you are staying at one of the participating Walt Disney World hotels during this test phase and try the new service, we would love to hear your
