    We are staying 5 nights at WDW. Instead of ordering deluxe dining and having extra meals left over, can we order Plus Dining for 7 nights and just double up on days we need extra meals (ex. Cinderella) or does it have to be the same # nights we stay.

    Howdy Susan!

    I think I'm understanding what your asking...but please do correct me if I'm wrong...

    Your Dining Plan is based on the number of nights you are staying at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  If you are staying 5 nights, you will not be able to order the dining plan for 7, because you'll only be a resort guest for 7 nights.  If you want a meal plan for 7 nights, you'll need to extend your hotel reservation by 2 days to get those 'extra nights.' 

    If you're concerned about unused credits, I'd suggest you go through and mock plan your meals and see what you come out with as a grand total for your 5 nights.  If you find that most days you'll only be using 2 credits a day, then I'd suggest going with the standard Disney Dining Plan, and then just pay out-of-pocket for your most inexpensive meal of the day (usually breakfast).  A easy way to use up all those Deluxe Dining credits is to dine at some of Disney's Signature Restaurants--a delicious and wonderful way to use your credits!

    Have a magical vacation!
