    We check into Disney on the 24th and checkout the 29th. We are on the deluxe dining plan. Do we receive credits the day we check in the 24th and the 29th? Thank you!

    Hey, howdy, hey, Susan and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Mickey and the gang sure know how to cook, bake, clean and entertain. I can almost taste the super-thick soft cookies from Minnie's Bake Shop. We are so thankful because when we go on vacation we do not want to do any cooking or cleaning and just relax and say...ahhhhh. This is one of the reasons a Dining Plan is "practically perfect in every way."

    Here is how the Disney Dining Plan allocations work. You are entitled to a set number of Quick-Service, Table Service and Snack credits per night of stay based on your Dining Plan. In your case, you will have five days worth of allocations. One for the 24, 25, 26, 27, and 28. You have until 11:59 PM of the 29th (your check-out date) to use all the allocations.

    With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, you have the pleasure of dining on some of the finest meals in all the "World." You will begin with 15 Meal credits and 10 Snack credits per person to use how you see fit. If a dining experience requires two Table Service credits, you can choose to use the credits that way. Typically, we arrive late evening and miss the first night of meals. We shift those credits to another day or our check-out day. You can find which restaurants participate in the Dining Plans by visiting the restaurant webpage and looking on the right side for the blue clickable "Dining Plans Accepted."

    Disney Dad Tip: You can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance or on the fly using the My Disney Experience mobile app. It is the best planning tool for your pixie-dusted Disney vacation.

    Susan, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories.
