    I booked a hotel and park ticket package but didn't select a dining plan at the time of booking. Can I add it on now? Thank you!

    Hi, Mary!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It appEARs you'll be experiencing lots of holiday chEAR during your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next month! There's nothing more magical than being surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of the season when you vacation during the merriest time of the yEAR! I know you can't wait for this special stay to begin. 

    Mary, I'm so glad you reached out with your Disney Dining Plan question because I have some good news for you! The Disney Dining Plan can be added to your package up to 48 hours before your arrival at the Walt Disney World Resort. My advice is to go ahead and call (407) 939-1936 to have the plan added now. During your visit, you'll just let your server know that you are participating in the Disney Dining Plan and tap your MagicBand to deduct your credits when it's time to pay. I love the convenience of only having to take care of the tips at meals when using the plan. And you'll find the servers to be very helpful if you have any questions at all! I know I had a few on our vacation this past summer because we had not had any experience with ordering alcoholic and specialty beverages, and the waiters and waitresses we had made it very easy to understand what was available for us to order with our plan. 

    Mary, now that you've decided to include the Disney Dining Plan with your package, you may want to spend some time looking over the meals you have planned for next month. I know I sometimes modify our dining reservations all the way up to the day before we leave! There are just so many fantastic options at the Resort hotels, theme parks, and of course, Disney Springs! If you have any other questions, we'd love to hEAR from you again. 

    Have a MAGICAL day!
