    I arrive on Saturday and check out on Wednesday of next week and have purchased the dining plan. When does it start and end? (Day/Time)

    Hi Gayle! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort is just a few days away and it sounds like you have been busy planning all of the details, including the purchase of one of the Disney dining plans. Good job! You are going to have a wonderful time!

    The dining plan begins when you check into your Disney Resort hotel and ends at midnight on the day you check out. For a 4-night/5-day vacation, you will get all meal and snack entitlements for all 4-nights of your stay in your account when you check in. You can then choose to use your meal and snack entitlements in any order until they are either all used or all expire at midnight on your check-out day.

    During the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, I like to use my snack entitlements at the festival's food kiosks in World Showcase. There are a LOT of foods to choose from that count as snack entitlements on the dining plan and help you get a lot of value out of your snacks!

    Enjoy your upcoming stay, Gayle! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
