    Hello again Ashley... can I book a Disney Meal Plan (the Quick-Service one) if I am not staying at a Disney hotel? If so, how? Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Thanks for sending me another question, Lindsay. I just love helping you plan a magical visit!

     Dining plans are an excellent way to add some convenience to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Unfortunately, only Guests of Disney Resort hotels are eligible to purchase a dining plan. Not to worry, though! There are other ways to add convenience to your Quick-Service mealtimes during your stay. 

     Be sure to use the mobile food and beverage ordering feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app. This handy option saves my family lots of precious time in the theme parks! We like to place our order while we're waiting in line for an attraction. Once we're off the attraction, we head for the restaurant, tap the "I'm Here, Prepare My Order" button on the app, and bibbidi-bobbidi-boo... our order is ready!

     With little ones in tow, I try to choose restaurants that will keep them entertained during our meals. Stop by Pinnochio Village Haus in Magic Kingdom Park and find a seat by the windows overlooking "it's a small world." While your kiddos eat, they can wave to Guests sailing by! Other "entertaining" Quick-Service dining locations include Be Our Guest Restaurant (for breakfast and lunch), Flame Tree Barbecue, and Woody's Lunch Box. 

     For lots of seating availability, dine during "off" times. We usually opt for an early lunch at 11:00 AM and an early dinner at 5:00 PM. When we arrive just ahead of the lunch and dinner crowds, we can easily find a table for our family of five.

     I hope this was helpful, Lindsay. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
