Online check-in available via Disney app

The My Disney Experience app for smartphones and tablets has been recently enhanced to include the online check-in feature. 

MDE Notification 201707

Up to sixty days prior to arrival, Walt Disney World resort guests--including those with Disney Vacation Club reservations--can now use the My Disney Experience app to enter their check-in details.  

Similar to features which have long been offered on the Disney website, the MDE process allows guests to specify their arrival time, room requests (which are not guaranteed), enter credit card information and charging PIN codes and more.  Guests who have completed this process and received their MagicBands prior to arrival should be able to completely bypass the resort front desk.  

The hotel or villa room number will be send as a notification via the My Disney Experience app when the room is ready for occupancy and access will be immediately enabled via the MagicBand.  

For a complete overview of the process, see the short YouTube video below:

The My Disney Experience app is available for Apple and Android devices.  It can be downloaded via the respective app stores at no cost.

I am glad they added this feature to the app, because so many guests are how only using their smart phones.

It was a nice touch showing guests walking into BLT and opening a DVC door. Of course the door wasn't at BLT as they have a dark stained door with an aluminum panel under the silver door handle. Like this:

Does anybody recognize the door in the video as I cannot place it?

Looks like AKL/AKV. You can see a little of the shield on the door as it starts to open.

I don't see the advantage of this over the current system. I've been using the advanced online check-in ever since they offered it on the DVC Member site and then I have received a text when my room was ready. The only new feature that I can see is that it can now be done on the App. Am I missing something?

That is the only difference I saw. But after I thought about it, a large number of guests only use their phones and many don't own computers because they do everything on a smart phone or tablet.

We might be the last generation to have an in home computer.
