    I'm confused on the actual days to use the Dining Plan. If I spend 4 nights & 5 days am I getting the 4 nights of food and not the 5th day since this is our check out day? Or can we use it from the moment we check in to the moment we check out.

    Hi Carey,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! I think I can help you to understand your Disney Dining Plan.

    You are correct in that you will receive meal credits per night of your stay. So if your stay is four nights, you will receive four days' worth of meal credits. These are very flexible, and the meal credits are available from your check-in day until midnight of your check-out day. There is no particular order in which you need to use them.

    I do suggest that you make reservations ahead for any table-service dining that you are planning to do. You can do this online through Disney dining, or you can call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Carey! Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do let us know if we can assist further with your planning!
