    Hi Amy!

    Woo Hoo!  Congratulations on booking your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation with Deluxe Dining Plan!  You will be able to experience a myriad of foods and cuisines while enjoying your times at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    If you are looking at "meals per day", then yes, you are entitled to utilize your three meals on that first day of check in.  They do not include check out day into the allotment of credits as you will be leaving the resort, hence why it is best to think of your credits by "night". If you've booked a five night vacation, then your meal credits will be three (3) per night, equaling a total of fifteen (15) credits.  You can choose to save some credits so you can use your dining plan that final day, or you will need to pay out of pocket for those meals.  You can use whatever allotments are leftover up until 11:59 pm on the day of check out. This gives you a large amount of time on your last day to figure out how to utilize the remaining credits.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
