    If I’m staying 5 nights on the dining plan but only doing 4 parks how many table services do I get

    Hiya Scott!

    Welcome to planDisney! The return of dining plans is one of my favorite updates of the year! My family loves using the dining plan on our vacations as we love to have our meals pre-paid and ready to be enjoyed when we arrive. We are big fans of table service restaurants and make sure to secure advanced dining reservations every trip. 

    Dining plans provide you with meals and snacks that correspond with how many nights you are staying in your package and not how many Parks or days in the Parks you are enjoying. That means since you are staying 5 nights you will be issued with the Disney Dining Plan 5 table service meals. You can use them at any table service restaurants in the Parks, the Resorts, or at Disney Springs that accept the dining plan! Don't forget that you will also get 5 quick-service meals and 5 snacks. So much to eat! 

    A great way to use these table service meals is for character meals. I consider Chef Mickey's to be the gold standard of Walt Disney World Resort meals. It has Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, and Pluto which makes this a very special experience. I love making jokes with Donald about how his cooking is better than Mickey's. (Don't tell Mickey I said that!) Donald is just so adorable. Chef Mickey's is located at Disney's Contemporary Resort which is great for that day you are not visiting a Park. The breakfast and dinner at this location are just one table service meal and are a great value when using the dining plan. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions you know where to go!

    Happy Planning!
