    Hey! We have booked a Disney vacation for November. We check in on a Tuesday afternoon and check out on a Saturday morning. We have the Dining plus package (in between the basic and deluxe). How many credits will we have for 2 adults and 1 child?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, April!

    Planning an upcoming visit to Walt Disney World is one of my favorite pastimes, and deciding how to best utilize a Disney Dining Plan is a highlight of that planning!

    Disney Dining Plan Plus is the perfect balance of meal options for so many families--mine included--so I'm sure you'll be thrilled with your choice. Dining Plans go by nights of stay, so your 4 night stay will give you 4 sets of meal entitlements per person

    Because you have 2 adults, you will receive 16 adult meals (2 meals/night x 4 nights=8 per adult; 2 adults=16 adult meals) and 8 children's meals. In addition, you'll each receive 2 snacks/nonalcoholic drinks per night of stay, so that gives you 24 snacks (3 people, 2 snacks per night, 4 nights). The entire total will appear in your My Disney Experience account on the day of your check-in, and you can keep track of what you have left using the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app. Deliciously easy peasy!

    Each member of your party will also receive a Resort-Refillable Drink Mug, one of my family's favorite souvenirs.

    Now the fun begins...where do you plan on spending those dining entitlements? What's great about the Disney Dining Plan Plus is that Guests may use these meal entitlements in any combination of Quick-Service meals or Table-Service meals, whichever fits their itinerary. Consider booking an extra-magical Character Dining experience one day, and pairing that with a convenient Quick-Service meal and a snack in between. Another day, splurge on Signature Dining (which requires 2 meal entitlements) such as Cinderella's Royal Table or dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. With an afternoon arrival and a morning checkout, you may have enough entitlements for at least one of these pixie-dusted experiences during your stay.

    As you can see, planning the perfect Disney dining day will be a breeze with the flexibility of your Disney Dining Plan Plus. Great choice!

    Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too, April. We love to help!
