Online Check-In Will Be Required For Future Walt Disney World Resort Room Reservations Following COVID-19 Pandemic
With newly-implemented social distancing protocols already testing at Disney Parks abroad, it appears there’s some ongoing internal testing of potential new protocols for the hotel check-in process at Walt Disney World Resort.
The dates in the screenshot span July 12 through July 17. Some guests have also mentioned seeing this update on their app for reservations as early as June, but the new “Now Required” verbiage isn’t appearing on all reservations just yet, as seen in the screenshot above. As far as international guests are concerned, it’s unclear how the increased shift towards Online Check-in will affect those arriving from abroad. MagicBands may be left in rooms moving forward for guests to have upon arrival in lieu of a visit to the front desk, but this is not confirmed.
