    SO we will be arriving mid afternoon probably around 3-4pm. I have a few questions:

    1.) Does our DDP Start That day?

    2.) I want to do Cinderellas Royal table and I know that Takes two TB credits,
    so here is what I was thinking... If my DDP credits start that day and we arrive in the time frame we would already have stopped for lunch on the way so , when we get there (resort) and use the counter service for dinner, would i have a TB credit left over so I can use it for Cinderellas Table dinner

    Yes, your credits are good as soon as you check in. You get one TS and CS and 1 snack credit for each night of your reservation if you have the traditional DDP, but can use them in any order you wish. If you prefer to eat only a CS on the first night for your dinner than you will have a TS that can be combined with another TS for use at the castle.

    We usually go to DTD on first night, ds likes Rainforest. I get a gift card in advance for that (so as not to have to pay out of pocket) and then we have "banked" that Ts and use it for a show or something that works for 2 TS.
    Have a great time and GOOD LUCK getting all your ADR's! :wizard:

    Your dining credits are available the minute you check in and are valid until midnight the day you check out. You can use your credits however you wish, you can use 1 TS credit a day or more than 1 a day the choice is yours.

    Since your DDP starts the day you check in, you can certainly opt not to use one TS credit that night so that you have it for later. I think you've got a great plan for how to fit in the CRT reservation. The first day you arrive you probably won't feel like a big dinner anyways, so it would be a waste of a credit. Enjoy your Cinderellas Table Dinner!

    We drive in and don't arrive until mid afternoon. We have usually eaten lunch on the road. To get some Disney time in before hitting the parks, we go to Downtown Disney and eat our dinner out of pocket. This year, we'll hit T-Rex. That table service credit will be used for a dinner show and our counter service credit will be used for breakfast one day. Don't forget that your credits don't expire until midnight the day you check out.
