    We will be arrive early on the first day and leaving late the last day, so we would need an extra days worth of DDP vouchers. Can this be done?

    No, it has to match the number of nights on your reservation. You would have to book another night. They are not vouchers, they are credits on your room key.

    No, but you may not need to extend. The DDP credits are good from checkin until midnight after checkout. If you use your credits wisely, you should be fine.

    For example, use a CS credit at Cosmic Ray's for a rib platter, chicken platter, or rib/chicken platter. It's a good bit of food and can easily substitute for a TS meal.

    We are doing the same, so we are doing OOP on Sunday for b'fast and lunch and then dinner will be our first meal on the deluxe plan. Then on the last, we will use the dining plan for the others.

    Good luck - Di:cool1:

    Actually some of the CS meals are so big, they can be shared. That's what we have done in the past. I can't possibly eat many of the CS meals by myself, especially after having a big meal the night before, so I share with my Mom. By the end of the week we have enough extra CS credits that we can cover that last extra day.

    We've done the same thing... it's always worked out just fine for us.

    We have used the DDP a couple of times, and we can never use all the CS credits. We have always had extras, even when we have had nearly a full day that last day.

    We aren't going to do the DDP again. We recently did a detailed accounting of what we ate on our last trip and compared it to the cost of the DDP. Our OOP cost using the TIW card instead of DDP was almost $200 cheaper than the DDP would have been! Plus, we were able to order appetizers instead of desserts, since that is our preference anyway.
