    Although I have tried to research dining cards, I still do not understand. Are these purchased at the Good Neighbor Hotel? Do I have to buy park tickets at the hotel as well or can I buy tickets through Disney and the dining card at the GN hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dave! I’m so glad you stopped by to visit us with your planning question!

    I totally understand how you feel. It can be really confusing to figure out all of these details, but don’t worry! I’m happy to help you!

    The Quick Service Dining Cards are their own deal. This means that you can purchase them at your Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotel without having to buy anything else. Just ask someone at the Front Desk and I’m sure they will be happy to help you with your purchase. These cards are a pretty good deal, because they have a value that's more than the price you pay for them. So that means, you're purchasing quick service meals ahead of time and saving a few dollars. 

    Dave, when it comes to your theme park tickets, you can purchase them on Disney’s official web page. Don’t forget to check out any specially priced tickets for the season. Mid-Day Magic tickets are now being offered at a discounted price. They allow you access to one theme park per day at 12:00 p.m. and are a good value if hitting the theme parks first thing in the morning is not really your thing.

    Before your vacation, I suggest that you link your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account. If you don’t have one, you can always create one. It’s really fast and easy! This account will allow you to keep all of your vacation plans in the same place. Disney dining reservations, theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections and even Memory Maker can be linked using the same information on this link.

    I hope I’ve been able to help you. If you have any other questions or need some more planning tips, please don’t hesitate to come back to see us. It’s our pleasure to help you with all the details of your next magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
