    can you add dining plan AFTER you have paid in full?

    Hi there, Rachel! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so glad you found your way to us with a question about your upcoming trip!

    Disney food is one of my very favorite topics. One of the best parts of planning, in my opinion, is planning where and when you will share in special meals and snacks with your loved ones! The Disney Dining Plans allow you ultimate vacation flexibility, and the freedom to not worry about costs, instead just focusing on each person being able to make the choices that most appeal to them!

    You’re in luck, Rachel, as it is definitely possible to add a Disney Dining Plan after you have paid for your vacation in full, up to 48 hours prior to the start of the trip! You can modify an existing Disney Vacation Package via your My Disney Experience account, or contact a Disney Travel Planner at (407) 939-5277 and they will be happy to assist you.
    Rachel, remember that Dining Reservations can be made and modified easily on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Definitely keep a look out for cancellation deadlines, though, if you will be making any last minute changes. Also, many Quick-Service Restaurants offer Mobile Ordering, so that you can make your meal selections in advance and on the go, saving you valuable vacation time!

    Rachel, I hope you find this information helpful as your trip nears. You must be so incredibly excited! I hope you have a wonderful time exploring every delicious treat that Walt Disney World has to offer! While on the Disney Dining Plan, (or not!) it is always my recommendation to use a snack credit to enjoy a Dole Whip at Aloha Isle while visiting Magic Kingdom Park, and then head on over to the queue for Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room next door. It is a family tradition for us each and every time we visit the Parks!

    Please do not hesitate to come back to see us anytime that we can be of assistance to you in your travel planning.
    See ya real soon!
