    Do deluxe dining plan credits to other days if not used?

    Hi Cristina!

    You have asked about my favorite dining plan, the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. My husband and I have chosen this dining plan many, many times over the years because 1) it gives us a lot of flexibility for events like the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, 2) it enables us to eat at more Table-Service and Fine/Signature restaurant locations and 3) we LOVE food!

    On the day you check in to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, all your meal and snack credits will show up in your account. They can be used on whatever days you choose, as long as they are all used before midnight on the day you check out. You do not have to use three Table-Service credits every day. You could use two on one day, four the next, three the following day, etc. 

    Some days, I plan three Table-Service meals during the day. Other times, I will choose to use snack credits for breakfast by getting a piece of fruit or a pastry, depending on availability, then I will choose a Table-Service for lunch, followed by a Fine/Signature restaurant (that takes two meal credits per person) for dinner. Or another option, I will choose Character Dining for breakfast, use snack credits at the food kiosks at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival for lunch, then dine at a Dinner Show (using two meal credits) for dinner. In every scenario, I've used three meal credits per day, which is why I just adore the flexibility of the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan!

    My advice is to view the list of participating restaurants, plan out your restaurants each day and make Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your check in date. This is the best way to get the most value out of the plan!
