Beginning 10 days prior to a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) reservation arrival members can check in online at the DVC Members website for most of the DVC Resorts (The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa does not offer this service). By completing this simple online form before actual arrival, the resort knows that we’re on our way and will be ready to welcome us home!
Online Check-In is super easy and a great touchstone that you’re almost ready to go!
- Log into the DVC Member web site and select "Vacation Details" in the "My Membership" module in the right column of the home page.
- You'll see a list of your upcoming vacations. When you are within 10 days of your next Walt Disney World vacation, a link will automatically appear allowing you to access Online Check-In Service.
- Complete the check-in form. The form will ask you to add a credit card, confirm your itinerary and guests, offer a mobile contact number for use during your vacation, estimate your arrival and departure times, and allow for special request. Once the form is filled out simply hit the submit button!
- Once Disney receives the form, they will send you an e-mail confirmation and you're all set!
Now, when Disney’s Magical Express drops us off at Kidani Village, we’ll head to the Online Check-In Service location at the Front Desk. There we’ll grab our keys and welcome folder, DVC rooms are typically are available for occupancy beginning at 4 p.m., since we’ll arrive around 1:00 p.m. we’ll store our carry on bags with Bell Services.
