    My husband and I have a split stay in Oct. We're looking to purchase the dining plan for the first portion only (1 night). If we check in Friday, we'll be able to use the credits fri/sat? Will we be able to use refillable mugs remainder of trip?

    Hello Yu Wen!

    Lovely to see you here at planDisney again! Looks like you are planning to arrive right on Halloween! I once did the same thing and came straight from the airport to enjoy Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! I expect party dates to be announced shortly so keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog

    The number of dining plan meals and snacks is determined by how many nights you are staying on your reservation. Since you are doing a split-stay at two different resorts you will have two different reservations. If you purchase the dining plan it will be linked to one of your reservations and will last as long as that reservation. What that means is that your initial one-night stay will produce enough meals and snacks to last one day. This can be stretched out to be used until midnight of the day you check out. Essentially if you're arriving Friday and checking out Saturday you can begin using it Friday and finish the meals and snacks on Saturday. You will also procure a lovely Resort Refillable Mug for your stay. According to the dining plan details, the resort-refillable mugs expire as well at midnight on your package reservation checkout date. This means that you unfortunately will not be able to use it for your second Resort stay. I suggest however, you speak to a Cast Member about how you can reactivate your mug for the rest of your stay if you would like to continue to use it. 

    I hope this helps and you have a magical and delicious time!

    Happy Planning!
