    The day we arrive we are eating at chef Mickey befor we go to the park and can check into our room, can we still use our dining plan for this?

    Hi, there!

     Megan, your Spring visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is just around the corner. How exciting! 

     I am so tickled to hear about your arrival day plans. My family has a tradition of visiting Chef Mickey's for dinner on the first day of our Walt Disney World Resort vacations, and we look forward to it year after year! You'll be pleased to know that you may use your Disney Dining Plan for your advanced dining reservation at Chef Mickey's on your arrival day, even before you have access to your Resort hotel room. Isn't that great? My family loves the Disney Dining Plan for its convenience and value, and I think you will too. Did you know you can use your meal and snack entitlements in any order during your stay? Talk about flexibility!

     Prior to your arrival, be sure to complete Disney's complimentary online check-in process. Checking-in ahead of time will get you to the fun faster! When you check-in online, you can add contact information for communications during your stay (like a text notification when your Resort hotel room is ready!), make room location requests, and create a personal pin code associated with your MagicBand. 

     Thanks for stopping by, Megan. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
