    We’re arriving at 6:00am and would like to book a character breakfast. Can we use our dining plan credit without being able to check in yet?

    Hey Lori!

    I can’t think of a better way to start your Walt Disney World Resort than by enjoying a lively Character Breakfast. 

    You can dive into that right when you arrive, even if you haven't officially checked in yet. Your Disney Dining Plan credits kick in on your check-in day and last until midnight on your check-out day. So, if you're getting in at 6:00 am, go ahead and start your day with some Mickey waffles and Disney magic.

    One of our favorite Character Breakfast spots is at Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. Breakfast a la Art with Mickey & Friends offers a prix-fixe menu. Your breakfast will begin with an assortment of fresh pastries and bread and you have your choice of entrée. The Wood-fired Steak and Eggs was out of this world and the character interactions left my family wanting to experience it all over again.

    I suggest using Direct-to Room Service and Online Check-In to make things even smoother. This way, you can let your Disney Resorts Collection hotel know you're arriving early and even request your room to be ready before the usual 3:00 pm check-in time. While they can't promise your room will be ready right away, they'll do their best to accommodate your request.

    So, go ahead and start your vacation with some character fun and enjoy every moment of your Disney adventure!
