    i am traveling 9/1-9/7 and we got the delicious deal for free dining. I want to come a day earlier on 8/31. I know I won’t get the delicious deal, but can I extend my trip and still use my park tickets a day early since I have to leave the morning of 9/7?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Christina. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! It's the very best kind if you ask me.

     The only thing better than a Disney vacation is a discounted Disney vacation. Well done on scoring that incredible free dining deal! You're sure to enjoy lots of pixie-dusted adventures AND lots of delicious food. I don't blame you for wanting to extend your stay. What's not to love about more magic? On the Disney Visa Cardmembers Special Offer page on the Walt Disney World Resort website, it states that with this free dining deal, "Theme Park Tickets are valid for admission beginning on date of check-in." That said, the page details also mention that packages may be available for longer lengths of stay! My best advice is to call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservation line. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to assist you! With information about your specific reservation, they'll be able to tell you if you can modify your check-in date so that you can visit the theme parks a day earlier than you initially planned to. 

     Do you need some recommendations for great Quick-Service dining options in the theme parks? My family's favorites include Columbia Harbour House at Magic Kingdom Park, Connections Eatery at EPCOT, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Satu'li Canteen at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. All these locations offer a fantastic value when using a dining plan!

     I hope this was helpful, Christina. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We'd love to help you plan a magical stay!
