    Hello! 14 days till vacation! We will be arriving at our resort around 12 PM. Was wondering if we could use our dining plan to grab lunch before our room was ready? Thanks!

    Hi, Brittany!

    You must be excited with your vacation coming up so soon. Start packing because Mickey Mouse and his pals cannot wait to see you!

    On your arrival day, you can begin using your Disney Dining Plan credits as soon as you arrive. These credits are valid until midnight on the day you check-out. Make sure to use up all of your credits before heading home as they will expire.

    While you are waiting for your room to be ready, you can do whatever you wish. Head to the theme parks, have lunch, or take a dip in the pool. If you have any luggage or carry-on bags with you, you can drop them at Bell Services and they will be happy to store your things until your room is ready.

    Make sure you have completed your online check-in on My Disney Experience. If enter your phone number or email, you will receive a message with your room number once your room is ready. Such a handy service!

    You are traveling during such a nice time of the year. During the spring, you can enjoy the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Nothing says "summer is coming!" like all the beautiful flower displays in the park! Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
