    I know we can extend our 5night/6day stay at the end of our stay, but can we just stay in the resort the day before we start 5night/6day package. We will arrive late in the afternoon and want to just rest in the room then start our magic the next day


    You're welcome to hang around the resort for a day or two prior to your vacation package! It sounds like you've planned your check in date so that you get free dining. If that's the case, you'll need to see if checking in a day earlier will still be in the 'free dining' window. If it is, all the better for you - you'll get free dining for one more night! If it doesn't, you will simply need to make a separate, room-only reservation for the first night. Essentially you will check in twice, checking out and then back in again so that you keep your free dining offer.

    Have a great vacation!
