test yourself your own code, step by step
create a new php file, put your code alone inside, open the page in your browser, if you don't see what you're looking for, do a right click and choose view source
if you don't see what you're looking for the answer is no

At first look, you miss the brackets []
AND
you don't echo/print something

	$dates='["'.implode('","').']';
  ?>

  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/jquery-ui.js"></script>
  <script>
  $(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker();
  });
  </script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

	$('#date_required').datepicker({

				beforeShowDay: disableDate
      }); 

	$('#datepicker').datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd', firstDay: 1});      
      
});


function disableDate(d) {
     return [($.inArray( d.getFullYear() + "-" + d2(d.getMonth()*1+1) + "-" + d2(d.getDate()) , <?php echo $dates; ?> ) < 0), ''];

My apologies.  This:
$dates='["'.implode('","').']';

should have been:
$dates='["' . implode('","' ,$dates) . ']';

line 6 is missing a double quotation mark right before the closing bracket.  It should be:
 $dates='["' . implode('","' ,$dates) . '"]';
