    Hi there! We had to book our package in 2 separate check ins in order to take advantage of free DP. Now we check in November 12 and then re-check in November 15 to get free DP. When can we use our park tickets?

    Hi Aimee,

    Your vacation is just around the corner. Are you ready to start your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort? Let's go!

    The Disney Dining Plans are awesome. And when Mickey treats us with that Special Offer such as a Free Dining Plan, that's swell! My family tries to take advantage of this offer when available. The only problem is it's tough to agree on what restaurants to go to. So many options!

    When you book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package with Dining, the meals and Theme Park Tickets become available once you Check-In to your Resort hotel. Since you mentioned you have a split reservation prior to your Free Dining package, you can request the Theme Park Tickets from that reservation up to three days in advance, by visiting Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks or Disney Springs. You won't be able to make advanced FastPass+ reservations for those early days, but you will be able to make same day ones, once you enter the park.

    One last tip: make sure you download the My Disney Experience mobile app, which will help you plan and review your FastPass+ and dining reservations. You can even make changes right from your smartphone. See you real soon!
