    We are going to be staying at animal kingdom lodge in November. If we arrive at the resort a few hours before check in, can we use the resort/pools prior to check in? Same for check out Can we eat lunch at the resort prior to check in and use a meal credit

    Hi Julie,

    Absolutely! From the moment you step foot onto Walt Disney World property, the magic begins! If your room isn't quite ready, bell services can store your bags for you while you head out and explore the parks or enjoy the resort amenities. If you have purchased the Disney Dining Plan, you will have access to your meal credits as soon as you register. Your room does not have to be ready for you to be able to use your meal credits. Additionally, on the day of departure, you will have access to your meal credits and resort amenities until midnight on checkout day.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation! Please let me know if I can assist you further,
