    My family and I will not be checking in until really late the first night. We have purchased the family dining plan, it seems like we are being charged for 3 days of dining when we will only be there 2 full days. Any way to change this?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    The Disney Dining Plan is based on how many nights you have on your reservations. Since you have a 3 night reservation, your credits are based on that number.

    Your dining credits can be used anytime during your stay. If you have the regular Dining Plan, you will be entitled to 1 Table Service meal, 1 Quick Service meal, and 2 Snacks per guest per night of your stay. If you feel that you simply cannot eat this much food, you may want to consider opting out of the Dining Plan and just paying out of pocket as you go. If you think you might want to change, you will need to call a cast member at (407)939-7639 to see if this change can be made to your reservation.

    Personally, I say go for it! There are so many great restaurants to enjoy. Visit Pooh and his friends at the Crystal Palace, get a giant pizza at Via Napoli in Epcot, or enjoy a delicious seafood buffet at Cape May at the Beach Club. Once you take a look at the restaurant list, you will find it hard to choose just 3 locations!

    Whatever you decide, I hope you have some great dining experiences during you Walt Disney World vacation!
