    I have gotten the deluxe dining plan for my Disney vacation. I was wondering, one the first day that I arrive would I be able to use all 3 meals and both snacks that day?

    Hi Ronna! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are leaving for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation in just THREE days. Woohoo! Can you believe it is so close? You're going to have such a wonderful time!

    My favorite Disney dining plan is the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. I love the flexibility that it offers with so many meal entitlements and I never leave hungry, that's for sure! I especially like to take advantage of the extra meal entitlements by dining at Fine/Signature locations that use two meal entitlements per person. It is such a great way to try new things!

    When you check-in at your Disney Resort hotel, all of your meal and snack entitlements will be in your account for you to use in any order that you would like. You will get three meal and two snack entitlements per person, per night of your stay. If your vacation is a five-night/six-day vacation, you would see all 15 meal and 10 snack entitlements in your account from the very beginning. In this example, if you used three of your meal entitlements on your check-in day, you would have 12 left for the remainder of your vacation. You can even choose to use four one day, and two the next if you want.

    The main points to remember are that the number of entitlements you get are per night (not per day), they are all in your account beginning at check-in and they all expire at midnight on the day you check out.

    I hope this helps with your plans for dining during your stay! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have. Happy eating!
