    We will be visiting WDW for the first time using a dining package. Does the meal plan take effect for the day of arrival? Example,we get in at 2pm will we only have dinner as an option that day or will we have meals from that day to use later that week?

    Hi, Ashley! You are going to love have a Disney Dining Plan! You have from the time you check-in to your Walt Disney World Resort until midnight on your check-out day to use your Dining Plan entitlements.  You will have the other entitlements from your check-in day to use later on in your trip.  It usually evens out because you are given meals based on the number of NIGHTS in your  plan.  The entitlements you don't use on your first day can be used on your check-out day.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
