    We plan to stay at a disney resort for 10 nights. When does the disney dining plan begin and end? Getting a 10 day park hopper.

    Hi Lisa,

    I think I understand your question.  When  you check in at the resort, you'll be given a welcome packet and your key to the world card.  This card will have your tickets, dining information, room key and charging privileges (if you choose that option) on it.

    As soon as you have your Key to the World, you can begin using your dining credits.  You'll receive a full day of credits for each night you are staying at your resort.  In other words, 10 nights = 10 days of dining credits.  There are no restrictions on when you have to use each credit.  For example, you may choose to use several snack credits on the first day to get some water and pre-packaged snacks to carry with you in the parks.  Likewise, you may opt to eat only quick service meals on one day so that you can combine table service credits to enjoy a signature dining restaurant on one day.  It's really up to you to decide the best way to make your meal plan work for your family.

    You have until midnight on the day of your departure to use up your credits.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
