    We are planning to arrive at Pop Century on day of check in around noon. I will have checked in on the app and I know we won't get a room until 3ish but can we set up our dining plan to have lunch there before heading to a park?

    Hi Christina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I really enjoy using the Disney Dining Plans, primarily for the flexibility they offer.  Your Disney Dining Plan can be used from time of check-in at Disney's Pop Century Resort. If you have checked-in online, this will be from 7.00am that morning, so you'll be all set to enjoy lunch at Everything POP Shopping and Dining, using your dining credits, before you head to the parks for the rest of the day.  Don't forget that you can store your luggage with Bell Services if your room isn't ready before you want to leave your Resort hotel after lunch.  You can continue to use your dining plan until midnight on your day of departure.  It is entirely up to each individual Guest how they use their entitlements, and providing there are enough credits left on your account, you can use them in any way you please - maybe using more credits on one day, and less on another. 

    Dining reservations are recommended at Table-Service restaurants, and can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
