    We are coming to Disney next week and wanted to schedule a breakfast for the day we arrive. Will we be able to use our dining plan that morning before checking into the hotel at 3 p.m.?

    Hi Tamara,

    Hooray for your trip!

    You can use the Disney Dining Plan on the day you arrive for your meals. You will need to check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort so they can active your MagicBands. This will then allow you to use them at all of your meals.

    The check-in time is when your room is guaranteed to be ready. You can always head to your resort sooner. Depending on the time of year, your room may be ready for you. If not, you can leave your luggage with bell services and Disney will let you know when your room is ready.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
