Free Dining when stay is longer than 14 days ...

I know that you can only use Free Dinnig for a max of 14 nights--- but if your stay is 15 nights, can you still use credits that long.

I guess what I am saying is the credits are not supposed to expire until you check out --- so if I dont check out for 15 days than will the credits expire on day 14 --- or will I just not accrue any more credits after 14 days.

Thanks!

Your credits will expire on midnight of the 14th night. I am not sure if they will let you book a 15 night stay under the free dining. You might have to book 2 different reservations. In that case, you would get free dining for both if they fall within the free dining period.

Yep - just checked the unoffical guide and they expire at midnight the day you check out. Not sure how that works in you case though. I would think you could at least use them on day 15 - just maybe not any on day 16 when you check out? Not sure.

You are right, I was not thinking,. The credits will expire at midnight on your checkout day. I guess I was trying to figure if they would let you book 15 nights and just not have the dining for the last night. You could have credits to use on your 15th day, if you have not already used them all.

I'm staying 15 nights. They would only let me book 14 with FD. So I have room only the first night. Then a second reservation for the FD. I figured this would work out best for me since I'm flying in on a Red Eye anyways and there is a good chance I'll sleep through a big part of the first day.

I have a question that I was hoping one of you may know the answer to. We are staying 12 nights during free dining, we have a 10 day ticket. Can you get a ticket longer than 10 days if you are staying 12 nights, is there a 12 day ticket?
Thanks,
pam

Nope no 12 day tickets. However, there is the waterparks and more add on. On a 12 day trip you are probable going to want to plan 1 non-park day in the middle anyways so your family doesn't meltdown from exhaustion and overstimulation by the end. For my 15 day trip I will not be in the 4 main parks for 4 days. I'll be visiting family in the area for 2 days. I'll be spending 1 day in a waterpark. 1 day will be sleep in, do some laundry (it is a 15 day trip afterall) while hanging out in the resort pool, then head to DTD for dinner and Cirque du Soleil.

after 14 days you will have to check out and check back in
or
Spit your stay in half and get free dining for the whole trip

I would not split the trip, or you're going to have to buy additional park tickets for everyone in the room to continue the free dining. I'd just call WDW, or do the online chat the disneyworld site has added, and ask how far out you can use the meal credits on a 15 night stay.

Fourteen nights resort reservation = fourteen nights dining plan credits. As Korileigh posted and others have confirmed, unused dining credits expire at midnight of the day you check out.

It must be different for us in the uk because we have a 21 day trip booked in august and 21 days on free dining.
