    If we are arriving at noon to WDW should I even make a lunch reservation at 3:30 if check in is at 4?

    Hi Erica!

    I'm not sure exactly what your question is, but I'll try my best to answer it.  If I don't, please write back with another question.

    You can actually check-in and receive your park tickets, Disney Dining Plan meal credits (if purchased), etc before your room is ready.  So if you are arriving at Walt Disney World at noon, I would go ahead and check-in.  You might get lucky and be able to get into a room early.  If not, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services and head off to lunch or even into a theme park.  There is no reason to wait around for your room to be ready.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
