    Hi, we have a reservation at the old key west resort next year, I noticed the check in time is 4.00pm but we can collect our theme park tickets earlier, can we also collect the dining plan package and start using dining credits before 4.00pm?

    Hi Nicola,

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Yes, you can begin to use your Disney Dining Plan entitlements at any time on your check-in day.  Though your room may not be ready early in the day, you can check-in early in the day.  At this time, you will receive your Key to the World Cards, which will include your Dining Plan entitlements, which you can begin to use at any time on your check-in day.  Just remember that the number of Dining Plan entitlements you have is calculated based on the number of nights you are staying, not days, so be sure to budget them as such.

    Have a wonderful time on your vacation at Disney's Old Key West Resort, Nicola!  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions as you plan.
