    At a loss with our meal plan. We have one meal and 3 snacks, no idea how to use the meal plan. This is our first time at WDW. Please help!

    Hi Aster,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to discuss the Disney Dining Plans with you!

    The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes three meal entitlements and two snacks per night of stay. The Disney Dining Plan includes two meal entitlements (one table-service and one quick service) and two snacks per night of stay. And, the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan includes two meal entitlements (both quick-service) plus two snacks per night of stay. Each dining plan also provides guests with a resort refillable mug.

    Once you check-in to your resort hotel, all of your dining plan entitlements will be loaded onto your account and you can use them in whichever order you choose. We have used the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. On both of these plans, we typically use one table-service meal entitlement on the day we arrive, another meal entitlement on the day we depart and all other meal entitlements on the days in between. We also typically start using our snack entitlements on our first full day.

    Remember that as a Walt Disney World resort hotel guest, you can make dining reservations 180 days prior to your visit for up to 10 days of your trip. Reservations are essential, especially for character meals. When choosing restaurants, you can check the number of meal entitlements required by going to the restaurant's homepage and, if available, clicking on a link that says "Some Dining Plans Accepted." A pop-up menu should appear that indicates the number of entitlements required.

    Aster, be sure to link all of your dining reservations in My Disney Experience!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
