There is another option and you don't have to worry about where you are and what you are doing at the "magic minute. A family member or trusted friend at home can check-in for you. Just give them the information . . . confirmation number and name tickets are in and they can get you set right at the earliest time. No need to get the boarding pass printed - just get it reissued when you get to the airport and check your bags.
I believe you can check in on your cell phone.You just have to sign up for it on the SW website.

Guest Relations at the parks will assist with this as well. If you happen to be at a resort, other than your home resort, you can also make this request of the concierge desk wherever you might be on property.

if your cell phone has internet access you can check in on your phone. Thats what I do. I set the alarm on my watch to go off 5 mins before the 24hr mark so I can put the info in my phone and hit enter at the exact time.
For our next trip I did pay an extra $20 for 2 of our tickets to get biz class tickets so at least 2 of us are guaranteed to board a1-15. My ticket was a rewards ticket and based on my luck....I am sure that even if I check in that ticket at the 24 hr mark exactly I am going to end up in the C group. At least I know my DH and DS (6yrs old) will be together on the plane. Hopefully they can save me a seat with them w/o too much hassle.
But back to original topic... you can check in on cell phone, someone at home, conceirge or guest services at any park. Don't need the paper pass at time of check in. You can print at airport.
