    I understand u can check-in early & visit the parks while your room is being prepared. Is it possible to make a dining reservation in the park before the official check in time as well? Will dining credits work before your room is ready?

    Hi Valerie,

    Yes! Your park tickets and Disney Dining Plan credits become active as soon as you register at the hotel - even if your room is not yet ready. You'd be welcome to show up at the hotel as early as 5:00 a.m. and register. They'll complete your paperwork, give you your tickets/credits and store your luggage for you. They'll even call your cell or send you a text when your room is ready. This way you can go have fun in the parks and return late in the day to settle into your room.
