    I have a Disney Dining Plan question. We check-in on a Sunday and Check-out on a Friday morning. When does the dining plan start and end? How many credits will we actually have?

    Greetings Allison!

    The Disney Dining Plan makes vacation budgeting so much easier! I think you will be pleased with this great addition to your vacation package.

    All Disney Dining Plans are determined by the number of nights you will be spending at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Checking in on Sunday and departing on Friday you will be spending five nights at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, you will have two Quick Service meals and two snacks for each night, or a total of 10 meals and 10 snacks for each person. With the regular Disney Dining Plan, you will have a Quick-Service, a Table-Service and two snacks for a total of five Quick-Service, five Table-Service and 10 snacks per person. If you are lucky enough to have the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, you have a total of 15 meals at any type of dining locations as well as 10 snacks.

    Your dining plan starts on your arrival day and ends at midnight on your departure day. We always do a tentative plan on paper to ensure we know when and where we will be using our credits. We almost always have extra snack credits, so on our last day, we snack up on portable, wrapped snacks like Chip 'n' Dale cheesy crackers or Mickey crisped rice treats. They make for great gifts for those back home.

    I know you will have a great time planning your dining adventures while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
