    Hello, If I'm purchasing a 10 day parks ticket, but will be arriving the day before and leaving the day after, can I just purchase a dining plan for the 10 Days?

    Hi Charles,  

    Thank you for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we are always happy to assist with your Walt Disney World Resort travel plans.  It sounds like you are planning a fantastic visit, ten days in the Theme Parks will allow you to fully experience the magic of Disney! 

    The Disney Dining Plan is calculated based on how many nights have been booked in your Magic Your Way Package, unfortunately you cannot modify the length of your stay in order to accommodate your Disney Dining Plan.  With that being said, it sounds like you will be staying for eleven nights which will only account for one extra Table-Service, One Quick-Service and 2 extra snacks per person.  I would suggest perhaps using the extra Table-Service credit to indulge in a Signature Dining experience or perhaps a Dinner Show such as The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue that require 2 Table-Service credits per person.  Since the Disney Dining Plan only provides guests with two meals per day, I am sure it will be easy to use the extra Quick-Service credits and snacks during your visit.  My family loves bringing home extra snacks to prolong the Disney Magic for as long as possible once we get home.  

    I hope you enjoy your visit at Walt Disney World Resort, Charles.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
