    My fiance' and I are arriving on 9/11 and departing on 9/16. Can we start using our dining plan before we are able to check in at the hotel? We would be arriving around lunchtime. Thank you!

    Hello Rebecca,

    Thanks for coming to the Moms Panel with your question.  One of the nice things about staying at a Walt Disney World Resort is that even though your room may not be ready until after 3:00 pm, you may check in at any time and get your tickets, Magic Bands and Disney Dining Plan entitlements.  So, as soon as you arrive, hop on over to your resort, take care of all of your check in needs and then head out for lunch and an afternoon of fun at the theme parks. Ask the Cast Member at the front desk to text you when your room is available. You may even leave your luggage with Bell Services and they will take care of getting your suitcases to your room.  No worries when you are on a Disney vacation! 

    It was a pleasure assisting you today.  We'd love to answer more of your vacation planning questions so please stop by again.  

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
