This November we are staying at the Poly resort and we are driving from New York so we are getting into Orlando the night before at a Hotel to rest up and visit some friends. The next morning on our check-in date we plan to head to Disney first thing in the morning and try to at least check into the Poly and let them know we are there and ready when they are for a room. Then head out for the day into the parks until I am notified our room is ready.
So considering that I have a room request fax in place and our itinerary above, would it be wise to still do the online check-in or just show up like I plan to and hope for the best with my room request fax? Or do any of you have any suggestions on the best course of action here as to get the best results for our room requests?
