    Is it necessary to check into our resort before heading to the parks? We have an early breakfast reservation inside the park and would like to head there first thing. Would we be able to use our park admission and dining plan without checking in?

    Hi Stephanie,

    If your park admission is linked through the website, you will be able to enter the theme parks without checking in at your resort first. However, your Disney Dining Plan credits and room charging privileges are not activated until check in. You'll want to head to your resort first to check in and drop off your luggage (you can leave your luggage with Bell Services if your room is not ready) before heading into the parks. 

    Please come back and see us again if you have any other questions, Stephanie.

    Have a magical day,
