    Thanks for all your advice and tips! I'm a bit confused by my chats with Disney reps online...We will be arriving on a Sunday, leaving on a Thursday & we got the Dining plan, is that 5 days of dining or 4? Chat rep said it was based on # of nights we s

    Hi Chrissy,

    When you purchase the Disney Dining Plan, the number of credits you're allotted is based on the number of NIGHTS of your stay. If you arrive on Sunday and leave on Thursday, then you're stay for four nights (Sun, Mon, Tues, and Wed nights).

    On the basic Disney Dining Plan, this means that you will be given four snack credits, four quick service credits, four table service credits, and one refillable mug for each person in your party. You can use those credits in any order you wish from the time you check into your resort until 11:59 p.m. on the day you check out of your resort. So while you paid for four nights of the Dining Plan, you can actually use your credits over the course of five days.

    If you find that you need supplemental food, you're always welcome to go to any WDW restaurant and simply pay out of pocket rather than with Dining Plan credits.

    I know this can be confusing. We're happy to help. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
