    We will be checking in to Disney's Art of Animation on 6/5. I have checked in online. I made breakfast reservations for us at Camp May Cafe at 7:50 am. Will we be able to use our dining plan even though we won't be checked in yet?

    Hello Heather,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You're going to love the Character Dining Experience at Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort! You'll get to meet classic Disney Characters while enjoying a delicious "all-you-care-to-enjoy" breakfast buffet. My youngest daughter had her very first meeting with Mickey and Minnie there and it's one of our family's favorite places to dine before a day in the Theme Parks! You're also going to really enjoy Disney's of Animation Resort. My family has stayed there on three different occasions, and it has become one of our top picks for Resort Hotels. My kids love the "larger than life" characters that are showcased throughout the Resort and enjoy splashing the around in the Big Blue Pool.

    If you have completed Online Check-In, provided your credit card information, and received a "Direct to Room" email, then you should be able to use your Disney Dining Plan entitlements for your meal at Cape May Cafe. The "Direct to Room" email indicates that everything has been activated, and you are all set to start enjoying the Theme Parks and Disney Dining Plan entitlements. 

    If you did not receive an email, then you can call (407) 939-3463 to make sure they have all of the information needed so that everything is activated.

    Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
