    We are a family of four (kids 13 & 14) on the regular dining plan. Can we just use three credits at a table service? Is that acceptable? We'll buy four drinks. Thanks.

    Hi Mike,

    In no time, December will be among us and you'll start your magical vacation during the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. It is my family's favorite time of the year to visit. The whole Resort dresses up to the occasion.

    The Disney Dining Plans are awesome and give you so much flexibility with regards to meals. You get a set of meal credits per night of your stay, for each member of your family. But all these entitlements are ready for you to use from the moment you Check-In to your Resort hotel, until midnight of the day you Check-Out. You can use them as you please.

    There's been times when one of my family members was not hungry (after snacking right before dinner for example). Instead or ordering a meal, we would save the meal entitlement and order an appetizer instead, and pay for it out of pocket. Simply inform your server when ordering, and he or she will take care of everything.

    One last tip: we love Candlelight Processional, and a great way to experience it is with a Candlelight Dining Package. You get to enjoy a great meal and then get guaranteed seating for one of the shows. See you real soon!
