has anybody tried online check in at resorts
No, I've not tried it although I know I could have. I've only read reports on the experience and honestly, couldn't see where it did much. Unless I'm missing something significant...
One reason why I don`t bother with checking in on line whenever we stay at the GF is that I always hang around at the check in desk hoping to spot if one of the CM`s that I know is on duty.
It`s very useful in getting a room upgrade, or at least, in getting a room in the building we prefer.....much better than doing things on line IMHO.
