    Since you can't check in at your resort until the afternoon, is it possible to pick up park tickets/dining plan cards the night prior to avoid having to go to the resort early that morning?

    Hi Cathy, 

    You can check into your resort when you arrive, but you are not guaranteed that your room is ready until after 4:00 pm.  When my family has an early flight, we head right to the resort and then check-in and leave any luggage or carry-on bags that we have with Bell Services.  You will be given your Key to the World cards which will have your park tickets and Disney Dining Plan on them.  You can leave a cell phone number and either be called or have a Cast Member text you when your room is ready and the room number.  I have never had a problem at all doing this.  If you used Disney's Magical Express, your luggage will be delivered to your room while you are playing at one of the theme parks.  Please let me know if I can help you further plan your vacation, Cathy!  I know it will be magical!
