DDP question about number of days

I have two trips reserved, one this year and one in March. We have decided to do the DDP for both and used the calculator to decide whether it would be a good deal based on our reservations. This morning when I put in our dates, the calculator kept adding the number of days rather than nights to determine the number of meals. For example, our first stay is five days , four nights. There is no way we could use a extra days worth of meals due to flight times. Is this a glitch in the calculator?

Tried it again and it is still using number of days, not nights. Did something change that I don't know about?

I haven't used it in the past few weeks, but when you select your choices on the top it asks for the number of nights... Did that change or its not reading it correctly? Is the box on the bottom that shows available credits showing 5 instead of 4? If its just adding credits incorrectly I'd just change the number to 3 if that would get it to show 4 nights worth of credits.

Maybe try to download it again?

From what I understand and was told the food credits are good until midnight on the day you checkout we alway get 7 nights 8 days you only pay for whole days so in my case it's 7 the 8day does not count and we usually use what ever credits are left for breakfast and drinks, snacks to go hope this helps

The calculator asks you for dates which you roll into place for arrivals and departures. Mine is five days, four nights and before , when I booked in different restaurants, it always calculated value based on number of nights. For some reason this morning, it is adding in the extra day into the calculation. I know this is not correct unless there has been a change in the way the plan is calculated. Weird.

Nope, still based off the numbers of nights. But my spreadsheet on the top does not ask for dates. It has a specific drop down that asks for the number of nights you're staying versus actual dates. Maybe they've updated it since I downloaded it?

Maybe it is a different calculator. It is under distripplanner.com. I plugged in my dates and it gives me meals for each day. I know the last time I used it, it was different.

Actually you pay for the nights, not full days.
