    I am new to the DVC family and a little confused on the dinning plan. Can we purchase a plan and use our discount for it? And if yes, can we purchase the plan for 4 days to get the meal points, but use them for the entire 7 days we would be there?

    Hi Brittney! Congratulations and welcome to the Disney Vacation Club. We are having the most magical time of our lives utilizing our membership, and I look forward to many, many more years of Disney inspired family vacations!

    There are so many wonderful perks and benefits of being a Disney Vacation Club member that I can see how it can seem a bit overwhelming at first. I'm still pleasantly surprised when I discover a perk! To keep up with everything be sure to thoroughly review what's listed under the Membership Magic tab on the Disney Vacation Club member site.

    Disney Vacation Club members do receive 10-20% off discounts when dining at certain restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort and other Disney destinations (Disneyland, Aulani, Vero Beach and Hilton Head) but there are no member discounts on any of the 3 the Disney Dining Plans.

    Also, Disney Dining Plans cover the entire length of your stay listed on the reservation. So if you have a reservation for 7 nights, the dining plan would be for the entire time.

    With the Disney Vacation Club you'll have a villa that feels much like your "home" away from home. I LOVE having a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer right there in our villa. While I bring groceries from home, we also purchase the Disney Dining Plan that includes 1 table service meal, 1 quick service meal and 1 snack. This way I'm able to stretch the value of the plan by cooking a meal in our villa and having additional snacks on hand.

    I have friends who like to experience it all while on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort so they book 2 separate reservations often at 2 different Disney Vacation Club resorts so they can resort hop and purchase a dining plan for just 1 of the reservations.

    The best thing about the Disney Vacation Club is you decide HOW you want to vacation!

    Wishing your family many magical and memorable years ahead!
