    I booked a stay at the Contemporary with the deluxe dining plan for family's 1st visit to WDW. Is there a restriction on the number of times you can use the entitlements for character meals? Hoping to do meets during meals to avoid lines in the parks.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    Wow, the plans that you have for your upcoming first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort sound absolutely perfect! Disney's Contemporary Resort is a fabulous location because it is right on monorail route, which makes getting to Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot super easy. In fact, Disney's Contemporary Resort is in such a prime location that you can actually walk to Magic Kingdom Park! The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan is also going to make for a pretty indulgent experience because you're going to get to try so much of the great food that's available at some of the fantastic dining locations.

    I love using the Disney Dining Plan when I'm on vacation because it's so flexible and really lets me and my family try pretty much whatever we want to eat. I'm pleased to tell you that there's no limit to the number of times you can use your Dining Plan credits for Character Dining experiences. If you want to use every single one of your Meal credits for Character Dining, you're welcome to do that! I actually think that a meal that gives you the chance to meet some Disney Characters is a great way to get some extra value out of your Dining Plan credits, so go ahead and make reservations for Chef Mickey's for breakfast, The Crystal Palace for lunch, and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall all in the same day if you feel like it! You're certainly right when you say that it's a great way to skip the lines and have your new friends come right to you.

    Have a magical day, Michelle!
