    We're going to WDW 12/10-12/16. I have reservations for Akershus using the DDP. Since this is our first day on property, do we check in at our resort before heading to Epcot in order to use the TS for lunch? I have done the online check in already.

    Hello Susan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are happy that you have decided to stop by and send us your first question.

    I am so happy to hear you have added a Disney Dining Plan to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package for your upcoming visit. They are very convenient and I just love the all-inclusive feeling of having our meals all paid for in advance.

    What an amazing choice for a first meal at the place where dreams come true! Character dining is a must-do activity for my family, especially royal feasts with the Disney Princesses. We have recently had lunch at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, and were positively surprised by the delicious Norwegian cuisine. There are also great options for little ones, as tested and approved by our picky 6-year-old daughter.

    Susan, if you already have your MagicBands with you, and have already checked in to your Disney Resort hotel online you should be ready to go! Simply arrive and go to Epcot to enjoy your lunch and your first day – I always love going straight to the parks upon arrival! In the event that you find any issues with your MagicBands or redeeming Disney Dining Plan entitlements, simply talk to Cast Members and they will be happy to assist you.

    I hope this helps you while planning, and that you have a magical visit and dining experiences.
