    How do I book a meal plan for my family if we are not staying at a Disney property?

    Hello, Jesse!

    Thank you for asking a question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney dining plans are only available to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. It is one of the perks available to Guests staying on property.

    We often do not purchase a Disney dining plan, so I like to have another way to pay for our meals before our vacation. Purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the months leading up to our vacations help me stick to our food budget and can be used as payment for our meals. We can also use them to pay for tours, merchandise or even spa treatments at any Disney owned and operated venues that accept credit cards. 

    I hope this helps, and please let us know if you have other questions as you continue to plan your magical visit! 

    Happy Planning!
