    If I stay 6 nights and leave on the 7th day and I only have 5 days with dining reservations can I use my 7th day on the first day we get there with our dining plan?

    Hi Connie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is SO close! I'm thrilled for you ... and a bit jealous! I get absolutely giddy when my countdown is near the end. You're going to have such a great visit!

    I love the Disney dining plans! Knowing that I have paid for my meals and snacks in advance makes my vacations even more relaxing. It is much easier to just budget for gratuity at Table-Service restaurants instead of budgeting for all of our food. I think you will really love it!

    When you check into your Disney Resort hotel, all of your dining plan's meal and snack entitlements for the entire stay will show up in your account. If you have the Disney Dining Plan (one Quick-Service meal, one Table-Service meal and two snacks, per night of stay) for a 6-night stay, all six Quick-Service meals, six Table-Service meals and 12 snacks will show up in your account for each person on the reservation. Even though there are 7-days on the reservation, the dining plans are per night, so it will be six instead of seven.

    With that in mind, you can use the meal entitlements in any order that you would like! For example, with the plan I explained above, you could use a Quick-Service meal on the day you arrive, three Table-Service meals the next day, two Quick-Service meals the third day, and so on, until all entitlements are used. There is a lot of flexibility! Just make sure to use all of your entitlements by midnight on the day you check out or they will expire.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Connie! Please let us know if you have any other questions!
