    If I already have theme park tickets, is it possible to book a stay at a WDW resort and a dining plan? Thanks!

    Hello Alyssa,
    Good question!  I have been in this situation before too.

    There are two possibilities here:
    1) If you are season pass holders, you can buy a pass holder dining package when you book your hotel.

    2) If you have another type of pass:  The rule to get the dining plan is that you must book a package that includes a room and at least one park ticket per person on your package.  This must also be booked no later than 72 hours prior to your arrival.

    I suggest that you call reservations at 407-WDISNEY and ask them to price out the different options.  Sometimes it is worth it to buy the one day park tickets (and you may want to get a 'no expiry' option with that so you can use it in the future) in order to get the dining plan.

    Alyssa, I hope this helps!
