Convenient Check-In, Check-Out at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort:
- Guests can save time and check-in online, up to five days in advance, before they arrive at a Disneyland Resort hotel. A link to complete online check-in will be emailed prior to their visit. Guests will need a Disney account and can create one by going to Disneyland.com.
- Upon arrival, for those guests who have checked in online and have agreed to receive text messages, they will receive a text message when their room is ready. Then, they simply stop by the Front Desk to pick up their key. For easy and contactless payments throughout their stay, guests can pay for purchases at Disney operated locations using their hotel room key with a valid credit card on file.
- The morning of check-out, there is no need for guests to visit the Front Desk, unless they receive a message or have a question. They will be automatically checked out for their convenience.
When planning to visit the theme parks, guests should make their theme park reservations separately, first, before booking their hotel room, as a resort hotel room reservation does not guarantee theme park access. To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid theme park ticket for the same park on the same date is required. Guests will need a Disney account to make a theme park reservation. For room reservations and travel packages, visit Disneyland.comor contact a travel professional.
