    Hello again, I am not a DVC member, but have a friend who is going to let us use their's time to visit Disney for a week. How do I go about purchasing a meal plan? tickets? Are there any other fees, since we are not the owners?

    Hi Andrew! You're in for an amazing treat as you get to experience the magic of the Disney Vacation Club!

    Once your friend books your reservation and have a confirmation number, simply call (407) 939- 5277 and a Disney Cast Member can add the Disney Dining Plan to your reservation. You'll need to do this a minimum of 72 hours or 3 full days before your expected arrival - it cannot be added once you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort.

    With the Disney Dining Plan, you'll discover there's a wide variety of fantastic and tasty food to sample and this makes it so easy. I love being able to make our dining reservation up to far in advance at most Walt Disney World Resort restaurants. The only thing you're responsible is gratuities with the Disney Dining Plan.

    If you don't already have one, create a My Disney Experience account - the hub for planning all the exciting details of your vacation. Here you can book all your dining experiences, plus reserve times for your favorite attractions. Everything is connected with the all new MagicBands available for guests staying on property. These colorful high-tech wristbands serve as your key to the world during your vacation.

    You can purchase your theme park tickets online:
    then link them in your My Disney Experience account and then you'll be able make your FastPass+ selections for up to 3 attractions per day - 60 days before you arrive.

    I hope your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort is magical and memorable!
