    Does the Disney dining plan start on the day of arrival? And ends the night prior to departure? Say I stay from 1/1-1/ 10. I would get a quick service/table service and snacks for the 1st but not on the 10th? I’m just making sure I understand this. Thanks

    Hello Craig!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I am so happy you stopped by to ask a question about one of the many wonderful Disney Dining Plans.   I love the Disney Dining Plans, they have always saved my family money on food rather than paying out of pocket.  I hope you are able to enjoy it as much as we have.

    I think this is a question most Guests have so I am happy you asked.   Your Disney Dining Plan credits will be available to use from the moment you check in, until 11:59 p.m. on the day you check out.   I will use your example,   if you arrive January 1 your credits will begin at check in on the 1st.   If you check out on January 10, you will have until 11:59 p.m. that evening to use up all remaining credits.   Isn't that great?   My family often saves a Table-Service credit to enjoy one last character breakfast before we leave the land of magic and head back to reality.   It does make saying goodbye just a little easier.   

    I hope this has helped, Craig.  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.  It's always a pleasure to help out a fellow Guest.
