    We have a stay at Caribbean resort, with Disney Dining Plan. We plan to arrive early on the first morning and would like to access breakfast right away, as well as a park. Is that possible when rooms aren't available before 3pm?

    Hi Robin,

    Sure thing!  If you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel prior to your room being available you may still check in at the Front Desk.  After you are checked in you will have access to your Disney Dining Plan and theme park tickets and may immediately begin your vacation fun!

    If you are using Disney's Magical Express transportation from Orlando International Airport to transport you and your luggage, keep in mind that your luggage will not be available to you until your room is ready at which time your luggage will be delivered directly to your room.  You do not have to be present for luggage delivery.  Therefore you should be sure to bring important items along with you instead of packing them into your checked bags.  I also have an upcoming visit at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and I will pack a carry-on sized bag with my family's swimsuits, our MagicBands, medications, and travel sized sunscreen.  We love starting our vacation off with some splash time adventure time at the Fuentes del Morro Pool.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question Robin.  Please let us know if you have any further Disney vacation planning questions, we are always happy to help you plan your next Magical adventure.

    Have a Disney Day!
