    Is the dining plan obtained at check-in? I'm asking because I would like to make a reservation for lunch, but if I can't get the dining plan until check-in then that wouldn't be possible.

    Hi Joe,

    Go ahead and call 407-WDW-DINE to make that lunch reservation! Once you check-in, you'll receive Key to the World Cards that will serve as your room keys, park passes and will hold your Disney Dining Plan credits on them. The good news is that if you arrive prior to the 3:00 check-in time, you can store your bags, register and pick up your Cards. At that point, you are welcome to head out and enjoy the parks, use your Dining Plan credits for lunch or whatever you would like. Disney allows you to "Let the Memories Begin" from the moment you arrive, whether it is officially "check-in time" or not. Your room will be ready when you return to the Resort that evening.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
