    We have gotten the Disney dining plan with counter serve, table service and one snack per day. We are going August 22 thru thr 29. What applies to the arrival day and what applies to our departure day?

    Hi, Toni!

    Your Disney Dining Credits are available from the day you check-in until midnight of the day you check-out. It can't get any easier than that!

    Since you are staying 7 nights, you get 7 Table Service credits, 7 Quick Service credits, and 7 Snack Credits. (And don't forget each member of your party also gets a refillable beverage mug for use in your resort's food court.)  Feel free to use your credits at any time, so some days you might use only Quick Service credits, other days you might use 2 Table Service credits for one Signature Dining location. Read through the details of the Disney Dining Plan so you can better understand the ins and outs of the program.

    Most importantly, do NOT forget that dessert will be included whenever you use a Dining Credit at lunch or dinner. You are on vacation so indulge! OK, substitutions for something healthier can be made, but I think a trip to Walt Disney World is the time to celebrate with something sweet and tasty!

    Each time you use a Disney Dining Plan credit, your remaining credit tally will be noted at the bottom of your receipt. Make sure to plan ahead so all of your credits are used before heading home on your last day. Enjoy all the great food in Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
