    Coming March next year 4 our 2nd visit! Were going to do the dining plan this time! Did not before.Does credits start the day you arrive and end the day you check out? Staying Sun/Fri checkout Friday that would be 24 credits for two people?

    Hi Kellie, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question!

    The way all Disney Dining Plans work is that each Guest staying in a given Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is given a certain number of dining entitlements (a combination of quick-service, snacks and table-service entitlements, depending on which Plan was purchased), per night of their stay. 

    Because you’re immediately given all of your entitlements at check-in, you can use them whenever you want throughout your entire stay, until they’re all gone. That does mean, however, that you will need to “budget” in order to ensure that you’ll be able to “pay” for all of your meals until your departure on your check-out day.

    In your case, if you plan to stay in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel in March 2017 for 5 nights (from Sunday to Friday) with the “regular” 2017 Disney Dining Plan, you and your travelling companion would have 10 table-service entitlements, 10 quick-service entitlements and 20 snack entitlements to use during your stay. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
