Disney Testing New Check-In Process

Disney is testing a new system that will allow for essentially no check-in for guests at select resorts. If all tests go well every resort will have this feature. Disney is allowing guests who have completed online check-in, paid for their stay in full and received Magic Bands prior to their arrival to go straight to their rooms.

With receiving you Magic Bands before your arrival you already have your room key so all Disney has to do is tell you which room to go to. The resorts testing this now are Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside, Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Villas.

The last time I checked-in there was no wait at all, but I have heard of long waits at peak times. This express check-in system seems like a big benefit for those who don't have many special needs.
