    We have restaurant reservations at our resort on arrival day but they are prior to check in time. Will the resort allow us to pick up our Magic Bands prior to eating to use our Dining Plan? Do we need to let the resort know in advance?

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    Rest assured, you will have full access to your resort, theme park tickets and Disney Dining Plan upon check-in.  You do not need to let the resort know you will be arriving before the official check-in time. When you arrive, proceed to the front desk to complete your check-in process.  You can store your bags with Bell Services and begin exploring.  Maybe you'd like to head to the parks before your dining reservation? No problem!  Perhaps you would rather hang out at the pool? Have fun.  Your fabulous vacation begins the moment you arrive, Jennifer.  

    Thanks for visiting us at the DIsney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
