    How does the dining plan work for arrival and departure dates? Do you get meals for those days?

    Hi Annie!

    This is a good question.  If you are on a Disney Dining Plan, you get meal credits for the number of nights you are staying in a Disney owned and operated hotel.  So if you are staying for 5 nights, then you get 5 days worth of dining credits.  You can use all of those credits up in the first couple of days (if you are hungry) or you can spread them out over your entire trip.  It is up to you.

    The dining credits are made available as soon as you check-in so you can use them on check-in date.  Any remaining dining credits at the end of your trip expire at midnight on the day you check-out.  It's up to you to manage them between those two milestones!  As I said, you can use them all up in a couple of days or you can try and stretch them out.  It's totally up to you!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
