    We will be arriving on a Thursday & leaving Wednesday. We bought a 5day park hopper pass (planning to go to parks on Fri Sat Sun Mon Tues). With our meal plan, can we start to use it Thursday when we arrive just after lunch or only on park days?

    Hi Jessica, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for sending us your question.  I am so excited to hear you are planning a fantastic visit to Walt Disney World Resort, I am positive you will make wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!

    With the Disney Dining Plan, your credits will be activated upon check-in and be valid until midnight of the day you checkout.  You are free to use the credits anytime throughout your stay, however please remember that if you have an Advanced Dining Reservation inside a Theme Park, you will need valid Theme Park Admission to enjoy your meal.  If you are planning on dining at a Table-Service Dining Location, I would suggest making Advanced Dining Reservations online or by calling (407) 939-1947.  Most Table-Service Dining Locations are extremely popular and fill up quickly.  

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort, Jessica.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
