Big Changes Being Tested For On Property Disney Guests

Big Changes Being Tested For On Property Disney Guests

Stating this Monday June 16th a select number of Disney World resorts will be testing a direct check in process where guests can go directly to their rooms without stopping by the check-in desk.


Reports say that this will include guests at the Contemporary Resort, Bay Lake Tower, Port Orleans Riverside, Port Orleans French Quarter, Pop Century, Animal Kingdom LodgeĀ and Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas – Jambo House and KidaniĀ Village.Ā  This test that is set to last about two weeks beginning on June 16, 2014, and going through June 28, 2014.

Pre-selected guests will be able to bypass the front desk at the participating Disney Resorts by:

  • Creating a My Disney Experience account
  • Connecting your Disney Resortsā€™ reservation to it
  • Being paid in full
  • Completing their online check-in
  • Setting up a PIN number on their MDE account
  • Receiving your MagicBands

Participating Disney Guests will receive a notification email a few days before arrival with instructions.

About an hour or so before their check-in time, guests will receive a text with their room number. They can then proceed directly to their room.

If the test goes well, I am sure we can expect further testing and roll out across all Disney World Resorts.
