    We arrive 1 day before our FREE dining plan starts on the 8/23. We will be doing a split vacation on another disney resort for that 1 day. Since we receive our magic bands/tickets prior to arriving, can we start using our free dining on 8/22?? TY

    Greetings, Giulia, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for your loyalty in consulting us for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning.

    How exciting that you've selected one of Disney's Magic Your Way Vacation Packages which is a perfect way to visit affording you and your travel party an inclusive vacation with all Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits. Your Magic Your Way Vacation Package with the free Disney Dining Plan will commence on the day of your arrival at the Disney Resort hotel that the Dining Plan is linked to which in your case is August 23, 2016. The extra day at the other Disney Resort hotel beforehand on August 22, 2016, cannot be a part of the package that commences on August 23, 2016, as it is a separate booking. 

    Bell Services at your first Disney Resort hotel can assist you with luggage transport to your second Disney Resort hotel if you wish.

    Control and customize your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for Advanced Dining Reservations, selecting FastPass+ experiences and personalizing MagicBands.

    Expedite your check-in on arrival day at each of your Disney Resort hotels through Online Resort Check-In.

    We hope this information is helpful and wish you a magical vacation, Giulia.

    Best Disney Wishes~
