    Hi we booked an early booker package which includes $2250 Dining and Merchandise credit, yet in my invoice it only mentions the Dining credit not merchandise. Will I be able to use the credits to purchase merchandise as well?

    Hiya Sarah! 

    Welcome to planDisney! You made such a smart decision purchasing the 2024 Early Booker Package that was offered last year for trips this year! It's a great deal and will help make your holiday even more delicious!

    The Walt Disney World Dining & Merchandise Credit will appear as a promo card in your email on the day you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. I'm not sure why it says "Dining Credit" on your invoice but if you purchased the 2024 Early Booker Package then you will receive a credit that can be used for food and all your shopping! Here is a PDF that will explain how the credit works and provide names of the locations where you can spend it! I have to note that locations are subject to change as I noticed while reviewing the document that it includes the gift shops on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser which has already sailed its final voyage. My tip is to speak to a Cast Member before you make any purchases to confirm that this location will accept it. Another tip I have is to save the barcode numbers in your phone's notes page and copy and paste them into the payment field when checking out during Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering. Ordering meals and snacks through your phone via the My Disney Experience Mobile App is one the most efficient ways to eat in the Parks. While waiting in line, you can plan your after-attraction snack and have it ready with minimal wait. Just make your selections on the app and when you get closer to the restaurant, counter-service location, or stand, you can let them know you have arrived and they will then tell you to come up and gather your food! 

    I would love for you to check out Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom Park! They make a delicious Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich that is only available for breakfast. A delicious chocolate hazelnut spread topped with strawberries, bananas, and blueberries. It's only available for breakfast so I make sure to order it on my phone while I enjoy some low wait times on attractions during Early Theme Park Entry. I then head over to the Mobile Order pick-up window which is on the side of the restaurant near the outdoor dining area and utensil and napkin dispensers. There is always a long line for regular orders so don't get trapped there and strut your way to a delicious treat with very little wait. 

    If you continue to have concerns I would reach out to the lovely Disney experts who may be able to look up your account details. I hope this helps and you have a fabulous time! 

    Happy Planning!
