    We are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort in February. My check out day is a Saturday but our flight does not leave until late in the evening. Does our dining plan expire at check out? Is there a late check out option?

    Hi Lori-alayna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Disney Dining Plan is something I enjoy using every time I visit Walt Disney World Resort, and I love the flexibility and convenience it offers across Walt Disney World Resort - at the theme parks, the Disney Resort hotels and select locations at Disney Springs.  It is entirely up to each individual Guest how they use their own entitlements, maybe using more on one day and less on another, and not forgetting your refillable drink mug which can be used for unlimited refills of select fountain drinks, and hot drinks such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate, at the beverage stations at any of the Disney Resort hotels, all day, every day.  The Disney Dining Plans may be used from time of check-in at your Resort hotel (if you use online check-in, your Dining Plan can be used from 7.00am on your arrival day), until midnight on your day of departure, and please remember that if you would like to dine at a Table-Service location, dining reservations are recommended, and can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  

    If you find you still have some Table-Service entitlements left at the end of your stay, I would suggest visiting your Quick-Service location, or retail location within your Disney Resort hotel and ask if they will convert your Table-Service credits to Snack credits.  You could pick up a few items for your journey home, or to take home as gifts!

    There may be the possibility of a late check-out option of 1.00pm instead of 11.00am, but this is down to availability, and does not affect your use of your dining plan.  This cannot be requested in advance, so you will need to ask about this at the Front Desk when you check-in.

    Come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and for all the latest official news and updates on events happening during your trip, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog.
