    If I book my Disney resort from a different site other than Disney.com do I still qualify to purchase the meal plan? Or get it free if they're running the special for free dining?

    Hey Judie-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. November is a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The winter holiday decorations are up and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is the perfect way to jump start your holiday season excitement. 

    When using a third party (Priceline, AAA, Costco and others) for Walt Disney World Resort hotels they become your travel specialist. All changes to your reservation must go through them and they will negotiate with Walt Disney World Resort on your behalf. It may be possible to add a Disney Dining Plan or get it free but only the third party will be able to arrange it for you. We have used private Disney travel specialists and any time a change is needed and we have called Disney directly, they have told us to go back to our travel specialist to make the appropriate adjustments. 

    I hope this helps you plan a wonderfully pixie-dusted trip. Please stop by again.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
