    The day we check in we have a 10:30AM reservation at Chef Mickey's. Room check in isn't until 3PM. How would we work this so we are able to use our dining plan being that the reservation is earlier than check in time?

    Hi Gregory!

    I like the way you think. Getting a start on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, once you arrive, is a great idea.

    When you arrive, you are free to check-in and head straight to your dining reservation at Chef Mickey's at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Once you are checked-in, everything that is included in your vacation package will be available for use, even if it is prior to your check-in time. Also, to expedite the check-in process, it might be a good idea to complete the online resort check-in prior to your arrival.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. 

    Have a magical time!
