    We will be bringing our 4 grandsons (5,10,11,13) to Disney World over Christmas Break. Dec 28-Jan 4, . We have tried to get into a Disney Resort which was our first choice , but have been unable. We did get a condo near by. How do we get a meal plan

    Hi, Shelly!  Walt Disney World can be really busy during the Christmas break, so I'm not surprised you've had some trouble finding accommodations!  You can keep trying, though, because you never know when something might become available.

    Unfortunately, you must be a Walt Disney World resort guest to purchase the Disney Dining Plan.  The plan is not available to guests staying off site.  You can, however, still make dining reservations, even if you are not on the dining plan.  Because the holidays are so busy, if there are dining experiences you really don't want to miss, make those reservations as soon as you can!  Reservations can be made by clicking Disney Dining Reservations.

    I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is absolutely wonderful for your grandsons - and you!
