Hi there - we have an RCI exchange for Saratoga Springs that came through, but the date falls two days prior than when we arrive. I know with most other Disney resort reservations you can check in via the app whether you use the room that day or not - however with this one, I do remember visiting the front desk last time (2016) to pay the exchange fee. Anyone know if that will just autobill to your room tab now, or if you're still required to manually check in for that? Can I check in via the app and arrive when I arrive?

We are staying at Saratoga Springs Resort right now through RCI and were able to go directly to our unit. I called DVC to get the reservation number and give them the names of everyone staying in the unit. Next I logged into to My Disney Experience account, added the reservation number, pre-registered, added my credit card and gave my cell number.

Awesome, thanks! They just billed you that exchange fee on your room tab?

Yep, just back and as long as your card is on file it auto bills to that card.

The app is getting better and better. A scan of the MB and everything is listed on your phone. You can see the bus times at your resort. (Didn't keep us from nervous speedwalking, though.) lol

I had an AKV exchange that we were two days late on because we were on their ship instead. When we arrived, there was a fancy plate of chocolate covered strawberries on the counter. I called down to say thank you but we hadn't been there for the two days and then they sent up a new special dessert.
