    I have booked a Disney value resort for 2023. I booked it last year with the Disney dining offer!! Can I ring up and upgrade my hotel to a moderate or deluxe and still get the dining offer??

    Hi there, Laura!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing us your question about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. You're set to arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth this summer - are you counting down the days yet!? Laura, you'll be visiting during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which means you'll be able to experience exquisite eats around World Showcase at EPCOT during your holiday. Also, your visit coincides with the first Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party date for 2023 - will you be partaking in the spooky festivities!?

    It's great to hear that you were able to take advantage of the Disney Dining Card Promo that was previously offered! This promo provides Guests who book vacation packages (including theme park tickets and lodging at a Disney Resort hotel) with a Disney Dining Card to use at select dining locations during their stay. Laura, I spoke with a friendly Cast Member who advised that modifying your reservation to another Disney Resort hotel would, unfortunately, result in losing this special offer. The only modification that would be permitted in this instance would be adding nights to your existing reservation at the same Resort hotel. I'm guessing this isn't the information you were hoping to hear, Laura, but I want to assure you that I've personally stayed at each of the Value Resort hotels and I really enjoy each of them. In fact, Disney's Art of Animation Resort is one of my family's favorites due to its larger-than-life theming and its position on the Disney Skyliner! I also just returned from a stay at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort and was pleasantly surprised with the recent room updates.

    Laura, I hope that you find this information helpful as you continue to plan an unforgettable holiday at The Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any additional planning questions, please don't hesitate to stop by planDisney again anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
