    My family of 5 will be arriving on 2/28/15. Will we be able to use our dining plan entitlements prior to checking into the resort? We arrive at 11:00am, so we are curious to know if we are able to get a bite to eat using our plan while awaiting check in.

    Hi Jermaine! How exciting that your Disney vacation is just around the corner! You will need to first check in to your resort when you arrive. If you're flying in and taking Disney's Magical Express from the Orlando airport, it will drop you at your resort. If your room is ready, you will be able to get in early, which is always a bonus. But not to worry because as soon as you check in your account is activated, so you can start your vacation immediately. This means you can start using your dining plan credits, theme and water park tickets and Disney transportation right away. And remember, with the Disney Dining Plan, you can use your credits in whatever way works best for you. You may find yourself using several credits on one day, and fewer the next. They are valid until midnight on your checkout day, so be sure to use them all up!

    Write back with any other questions Jermaine! Wishing you a magical vacation!
