    HI! Booked Cornado for a week (7 nts) w/ free dining & 8-day pass. Flight arrives 1 day earlier than what we booked. Considering staying at All-Star Music for the 1st night. Will they be able to give us our bands? When would the free dining start?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Meagan! 

    More often than not, my family stays at multiple resorts during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations, as I love to experience all of the different amenities that each resort has to offer!

    Meagan, you will receive one MagicBand for each member of your party for each reservation. So you will receive one set of MagicBands at Disney's All-Star Music Resort and another set upon your arrival at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

    Your Disney Dining Plan will begin once you check-in for your second reservation at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. Meagan, I recommend that you take advantage of online check-in, as this will allow you to start using your Disney Dining Plan first thing in the morning without having to physically check-in with the front desk! 

    Meagan, I had the pleasure of staying at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort not too long ago, and I have to tell you that the food at the El Mercado de Coronado was fantastic! You must try the Chicken Rice Bowl!

    I hope that this answered your question, Meagan, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical getaway!
