    I have an annual pass but want to book a package with the free dining offer. Is it true that I can save the tickets and use the purchase price of the hopper towards my annual pass renewal? If so, how does the dining plan get added to our magic bands?

    Dear Jill,

    Thank you so much for stopping by again to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I am also an Annual Passholder and I love all of the perks and benefits that come along with it! Unfortunately, the free Disney Dining Plan offer is not available to Annual Passholders, unless of course you would like to pay for an additional ticket for yourself and any other Annual Passholders with whom you are traveling. The tickets that are associated with this reservation are for the dates of the reservation only and cannot be held back for future use.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
