    Michelle Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We have booked via TUi and had the early bird offer 2024 offer and had the sit down dining plan. Are we able to amend it to just the quick service dining plan? We didn’t realise there would be a need to make so many reservations when we added it. Thanks

    Hi Michelle, welcome to planDisney. Is there anything as good as counting down the days till we're in that Walt Disney World sunshine to get us through the long U.K. winters? Congratulations on nabbing that 2024 Early Booker offer - it was a good'un!

    While you can always double-check with a Cast Member at Disney, as you booked your adventure through a third-party vendor, you'll need to contact them for assistance in changing your booking. Before you do, Michelle, please let me talk you through a few things Disney Dining Plan

    I do recommend making Advanced Dining reservations, which open 60 days before your arrival date, and, as a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you'll be able to make up to 10 days of reservations at once. A sit-down meal for our family is a very welcome break during the day. We especially like to do the Character Dining options for lunch (only available through the Dining Plan), as we can skip any line for meeting our kid's favourite characters while relaxing with some delicious grub during the day. Please know that I have generally found some Table-Service dining availability on the day if you wish to be more flexible. 

    Did you know that for each person dining at a Fine/Signature Dining experience, you can redeem Two Table-Service meals at once from your dining plan? Perfect if you would prefer to enjoy sit-down meals less often. I highly recommend trying the Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera in Disney's Riviera Resort. It's a perfect blend of Character Dining and scrumptious food that's not to be missed. 

    Michelle, I hope this information helps today and that you can dine at Disney exactly how you want. Please pop back to planDisney with any other questions.
