    Jaye from WI Asked

    We have the Disney Dining plan for 7 nights arriving Sat at 5:00 pm. Can we use our credits from our arrival Sat night to our departure the following Sat afternoon?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jaye! 

    We’re so happy you stopped by to bring us your question. I hope you’re getting excited about your magical adventure to the Walt Disney World Resort. I bet it will be one for the books!

    Jaye, your Dining Plan entitlements will be available for use upon check-in. So, yes! As soon as you arrive you will be able to enjoy a delicious meal at the most magical place on earth. You will receive the lump sum of your entitlements once you arrive to use as you please. 

    Depending on which plan you chose, each guest age 3+ will receive the specified entitlements per night of stay to use throughout the duration of the stay. Those entitlements do turn into pumpkins at midnight the day you check out so be sure to check your balance early that day and use up any leftover entitlements. You can exchange any quick service entitlements for 3-snacks as long as you do so in the same transaction. So, if you find yourself with some leftover entitlements, head over to your Disney Resort hotel gift shop and grab some snack qualifying pre-packaged goodies to take home with you.

    Jaye, do you have all your important planning dates marked on your calendar? You can start making your Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180-days in advance and your FastPass+ up to 60-days in advance. So mark those down and create an alert so you are ready to lock in all your favorites before they get booked up.

    Thanks again for stopping by! For any additional planning questions or tips, don’t hesitate to stop by and see us again. 

    Wishing you a magical day,
