    Staying in Orlando a few days before we check in the Caribbean Beach Resort on the 22nd. We have purchased the dining plan and have a reservation at Tusker House at 10:00 that morning. Can we come in on the 21st and get our dining card? Thanks

    Hi Amy,

    You'll actually need to head to the Caribbean Beach Resort early in the morning on the 22nd. They can take care of all of your paperwork and give you your Key to the World card at that time (which holds your park pass and Disney Dining Plan credits). You just won't get your specific room assignment until later in the day. Since your reservations are at the Tusker House at 10:00, you'll want to plan to arrive at the Animal Kingdom by 9:00. That restaurant is located in the back corner of the park and you need to check in 15 minutes early. Taking driving distances into consideration, I would plan to get to the Caribbean Beach Resort around 7:30-8:00. The good news is that they can store all of your luggage for you at that point.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
