    Dining Plan Q- We'll be arriving on a Saturday and checking out the following Sunday. Exactly what days do we have credits? The day we check in? The day we check out?! Thank you in advance!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jonathan!

    Disney dining plans are a fantastic way to enjoy some of the amazing dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. Our family is excited to be using it on our upcoming vacation and it feels so good to know our major dining expenses are all paid before our trip! The number of meal credits you will receive is based on the number of nights of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. Based on the information in your question, your reservation is for 8 nights, meaning you would receive 8 sets of meal entitlements, based on the exact dining plan you have reserved, per person on your reservation over 3 years old. For example, if you will be using the Disney Dining Plan, each person over 3 years old on your reservation would receive 8 table service credits, 8 quick service credits and 8 snack credits.

    The great thing about the plan is that you can use the credits flexibly throughout your vacation as you choose. So you can choose to use multiple table service credits one day for a Signature Restaurant or spend a day eating all quick service meals to maximize your attraction time. Your meals can be used during your vacation as you choose! You can keep track of your remaining credits as they will be printed on your meal receipts. Your credits will be available when you check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and any unused credits will expire at midnight of the day you check-out of your hotel. So they will be available to you throughout your entire trip!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
