    On the day of arrival, we have a table reservation at 1:30pm. Is it possible to start using our dining plan before hotel check-in at 3pm?

    Hello, Deanna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are delighted to answer your question concerning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    Are you ready for some MAGICAL news?!  I am very excited to inform you that you can most definitely use your Disney Dining Plan for your Table Service reservation before your 3:00 pm check-in time!  Don't you just love a happy ending?!

    My recommendation would be to go ahead and check-in to your Disney Resort that morning.  The Cast Member will then get your MagicBands ready and set up charging privileges for your whole vacation. After you check-in, you are free to explore your Disney Resort, play in a Disney Theme Park, and of course, get ready for your delicious meal!!!

    If you have other questions, please let us know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
