    Can only the adults book the dining package? The adults do not have park tickets yet, but I already have tickets for my kids from Airmiles. We would be staying at a Disney resort.

    Hi, Kim! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for bringing us such a great question. 

    Kim, when you choose to stay at one of the amazing resort hotels inside the magic, you are able to customize a package that fist your family's budget, needs, and wants! There are so many benefits to staying inside the magic like Extra Magic Hours, complimentary round-trip transportation from the Orlando International Airport via Disney's Magical Express, complimentary transportation throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, and more. 

    With Disney's Magic Your Way Packages you can book a Disney Resort Hotel, add theme park tickets, and also add Disney's Dining Plans. When you book your package, everyone on the reservation must have the same package specifications. So, if you choose to add a Dining Plan, all the guests on that reservation will also have to have the Dining Plan. 

    To see if this is the best option or if you would do better a dining plan calculator might be helpful. You can find some with a quick online search for Disney's Dining Plan Calculators. If you wish to have a special adult's only meal, you could also consider Childcare Services like in-room babysitting so you can enjoy some adult only time.

    I hope this helps you as you continue planning and dreaming up your magical Walt Disney World vacation. Don't forget to mark your calendar with your important planning dates, like your 180-day window for your dining reservations. You'll want to book your favorites early since availability is limited.

    Thanks again for stopping by. We hope to see you again real soon!
