    We are visiting Disney this February. My husband is working so we’ll be staying at swan for the first 5 nights and yacht club for the next 5 nights. If I book the dining plan for the time we stay at the yc can I start using the meals in parks before

    Hi Neda Danniel!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are going to love staying in hotels on Disney's BoardWalk. This is such a convenient location because you have quick and easy transportation to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios and you can take advantage of the dining, recreation and entertainment located along Disney's BoardWalk!

    The Disney dining plans are the perfect way to pay for the majority of your dining expenses in advance of your vacation, so you can enjoy incredible dining experiences during your trip without worrying about the cost of each individual meal. Your dining plan will be connected to your Disney Resort hotel reservation and will be active from your check-in date until midnight of the night of your check-out date. Unfortunately, this means you won't be able to use your dining entitlements from the second portion of your trip during the first portion of your trip when you are staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.

    Be sure to plan some time in your itinerary to visit Stormalong Bay, the incredible pool at Disney's Yacht Club Resort! Hopefully, you will have some warm winter weather when you visit and the pool is heated so it's comfortable even in cooler weather. It is my family's favorite pool at Walt Disney World Resort. Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
