    We will be going to Disney during the free-dining offer-YAY! Trying to make the most of our time, I was wondering if we have to check-in to our resort first, or could we pick up our tickets with the dining credits at a guest services location at a park?

    Hi Merry!

    This is a great question.  You do have to check in at your resort.  However, you do not have to wait until the official check-in time.  Instead, you can go over there at any time.  If your room is not ready, you can just leave your luggage with Bell Services and head into the parks and play. 

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and please write back with more questions!
