    If I have 3 reservations via DVC, one after the other, can I buy DDP for the first booking and use it across the 3 bookings

    Great question Kerry!  If you are staying in three different resorts, you will need to purchase three different dining plans.  I'm so glad you thought to ask about this.  During one of my past vacations, I didn't understand exactly how this worked and it caused some challenges for us.  One of the most important things to remember is that when you move from resort to resort, do not go to the front desk and have them close your account.  If you do this, it will deactivate any dining entitlements you have remaining on the current reservation and you will have to pay for your dining out of pocket.  If this happens, you will be able to get credit back when you check into your next resort, but you don't want to have to deal with added steps if you don't need to.  As soon as you check into the next resort, you will activate your next dining plan which will give you two concurrently.  Be sure to keep track of which card you are using to ensure you are using the older entitlements first.  Dining plan #1 will end at midnight the day you check out from resort #1.  Once you are on property and enjoying your vacation, this won't seem as confusing as what it appears.  The front desk can give you a print out of what remaining entitlements you have for table service, quick service and snacks.  You will also receive a new refillable mug each time you check into your new resort.  I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any further questions.  Have a magical vacation and enjoy each one of your three reservations!!
