    We will be arriving the morning of November 7, 2008, staying four nights at Pop Century. Since official check-in time is 3:00, is there a way to use our Dining Plan for a meal prior to the official check-in time?


    We've been in this situation several times ourselves.  When you arrive at your resort in the morning, go ahead and check in.  You may be pleasantly surprised to find that your room is ready and waiting on you (we've had that happen several times!), but if not it won't matter.  You can have your luggage held at the resort until your room is ready, and the paperwork will be out of the way.  I find it more convenient to check-in in the mornings anyway, as there usually isn't a line.  As soon as you officially register, you will receive your keys to the world.  You'll be able to use your dining plan credits from that point on, no matter when your room becomes available.  On the other end of our trip, you can use any remaining credits up until midnight on the day you check out.

    Have a great vacation!
