    For the QS dining plan, when can you start using the credits? Due to timing, we are only able to spend one night, but have park tickets for two days. We plan on hitting the parks prior to checking into resort and then the next day as well.

    Hi Paul,

    I have some great news for you! If you have purchased the Disney Dining Plan for a one-night stay at a Walt Disney World Resort, you will be able to use your Disney Dining Plan credits on both your day of arrival and up until midnight on the day you check-out of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Normally your Disney Dining Plan credits only become available after you check into your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. However, if you complete Online Check-In, your MagicBand which will be arriving in the mail shortly before your trip should be automatically activated on your arrival day, with full access to your Disney Dining Plan credits. Therefore, I highly recommend completing Online Check-In if you are intending to use your Disney Dining Plan credits prior to arrival at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Paul, I hope this information is helpful to you. Should you have any other questions, or if we can assist in any other way, please let us know. We are here to help and want you to have the best possible upcoming Disney vacation!

    Magically Yours,
