    Hello Sandra,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Great question about the Disney Dining Plan.  

    Your Table-Service, Quick-Service and Snack entitlements will be good from the time you check in to your Disney Resort hotel until midnight on the day you check out.  You can use those in any way you'd like during that period, so any entitlements you don't use on the first day will carry forward to the next day, and so on, until the day you check out.  You'll be able to keep track of what you have remaining by checking the receipts you receive, or just stop by from front desk of your Disney Resort hotel and they can print out details for you.  You'll also want to be sure you check your balance before you leave!  It's often the case with my family that we have extra Snacks left over at the end of our trip, so we try to use those for drinks or treats to enjoy on our way home.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!  We'd love to hEAR from you if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World vacation.
