    Bringing my 5 year old in March. We're not staying in any of the resorts but just going to do the two day pass with park hopper. Can you purchase dining plans for those two days, and how quick can you get from park to park?

    Hi Teresa,

    I'm so excited to hear that you and your little Mouseketeer are going to be able to experience the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort next March. You're going to have a BLAST and will make memories together that you'll both cherish forever!

    Unfortunately, Disney Dining Plans are only available for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel with a Disney Resort Hotel Package. If you'd like to prepay for your dining similar to a Disney Dining Plan, I'd recommend purchasing Disney Gift Cards to cover the costs of your meals. With a simple swipe, your meals and snacks will be covered!

    As far as moving around from theme park to theme park, you'll be happy to know that you can just sit back, relax, and let Disney do the driving. With an extensive system of buses, boats, monorails, and even the brand new Disney Skyliner, you'll be able to get exactly where you need to go. I'd recommend downloading the handy dandy My Disney Experience mobile app if you haven't done so yet, where you can find easy directions between any two places within the Walt Disney World Resort. Don't forget that Cast Members are always there and happy to help, too! As a general guide, though, I'd recommend taking the monorail between Magic Kingdom park and Epcot, and a bus between Magic Kingdom park and Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom. Between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can soar through the skies on Disney Skyliner. You'll also find direct bus routes between Disney's Animal Kingdom and Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I'm so glad that you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question, Teresa, and please feel free to come back and see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you and your Mouseketeer have a truly magical vacation next spring!
