    We are staying at a Disney Hotel for 5 nights but only plan to spend 2 days in the theme parks. Can we purchase the meal plan for the two days we plan to spend at Disney or do we have to buy it for the 5 days?

    Hi Janice,

    The Disney Dining Plan must be purchased for the duration of your stay and is based on the number of nights in your package. The good news is that it is accepted a numerous restaurants outside of the Parks. These are located at Downtown Disney and in all of the Disney Resorts. So even though you don't plan on spending the days inside the Parks, you could still use the credits for breakfast in the morning and dinner in the evening. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need clarification.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
