    We are visiting in Sept, arrive around 6pm on 25th from UK and depart from resort on 9th October at 2pm. We've treated ourselves to the deluxe dining package, as holiday it to celebrate husbands 60th. When can we start using plan& when does it end?

    Hi Nicola,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey and Minnie Mouse love celebrating with guests at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    As soon as you have arrived and checked into the resort, you can start using your Deluxe Dining Plan. If you wish to head straight to the parks, complete the online check-in process prior to your arrival then, in the park, feel free to check with someone in Guest Relations to be sure your dining plan credits have been activated.

    My family absolutely loves the Deluxe Dining Plan. We enjoy being able to use the credits for table-service or quick-service meals and we love having three meal credits per night of stay. We typically dine at two signature restaurants during our stay and map out our meals so that we still have one remaining meal credit on the day we leave. Dining plan credits expire at midnight on the day you depart.

    Since your husband is celebrating a special birthday, I suggest you consider ordering a cake or ordering from Disney Floral & Gifts. We have been delighted with the looks of surprise on our girls' faces.

    Nicola, you will love the Deluxe Dining Plan. It is wonderful! Be sure to make Dining Reservations as restaurants do fill quickly!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
