    Hi everyone, If my family and I were to check in on a Monday( late) pay for our resort stay for that night, could we start our vacation package(dining,parks etc) on Tuesday? I don't want to wast ea day on my package. staying for 7 days. Thanks, 

    Hi Cynthia!

    Great question!

    The short answer is "yes".  

    Basically, how the package works is that you have "X" number of days (whatever number you purchased) on your tickets.  The days start when the ticket is first activated at a park entrance, and you generally have 14 days to use them.  (there are some no-expiration options, but you would know if you bought that, and rumor has it that those won't be an option soon)

    For your dining plan, you are allotted "X" number of each meal-type (according to which plan you bought), and you can use them whenever you like throughout your trip.  You can use as many on each day, of each kind, as you wish.  However many you use at each meal will be subtracted from your overall total.  The only rule is that you use them before your package ends (the day you check out is usually the last day to use them).

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
