    I don't know if I am putting this in the right place. I looked for a DDP subcategory but I didn't see one, so here goes. This is such a newb question but I haven't used the DDP yet so I really dont know. I snagged a chef mickey res :cheer2: and realized it's for 8:40AM the day of our arrival. We will be there - that's not an issue. However, with check in being after breakfast how does that work? Will our magic bands be preloaded so we don't need to be checked in to use the DDP and get into the parks?

    Thanks.....Sorry for such a silly one. I really did google it and I got a million hits on EMH!

    :) Clueless in Chicago. :confused3

    You can check in as early as 6AM, but your room might not be ready until after 3PM. So check in first, then go and dine.

    Was just about to say the same thing. Once you check in if your room isn't ready just store your luggage with bell services. Enjoy Chef Mickey's! :goodvibes

    If you other DDP related questions, you can also post them on the DDP sub-board on the Restaurants board.

    :thumbsup2 Thank you. Also, the 6 AM info helps. I called specifically about this today and got two different answers. One was the magic band is preloaded just go eat the other was check in first.

    Some things are pre-loaded, but the dining plan credits are not activated until you check in.
