    Have deluxe dining and will be checking in on Oct 10th. Was planning two meals that day, but just realized I do not know what is included on the check in and check out days. Do we get the full days worth of meals on day 1 since we'll be getting there early

    Greetings, Christina, from a fellow resident of the Garden State!

    Your trip will be here before you know it.  You must be so excited!  I know I would be. 

    The number of Disney Dining Plan credits you'll have at your disposal during your vacation is based on the number of nights you'll be staying at your Disney resort.  So, if you plan to be there for seven nights, you will have seven full increments of credits to use per person.  Any of those credits may be used from the moment you check in until midnight on the day you check out.  So, if you wish to use credits to pay for two meals on your day of arrival, that is perfectly acceptable. 

    Let us know if you need any additional advice regarding the use of the Disney Dining Plan.  Many of us on the Moms Panel are huge fans of the Disney Dining Plan and have used it often. 

    Best wishes for a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust this fall!
