    Can I buy the dine plan without having a reservation with one of the resorts?

    Welcome to the planDisney table, Geraldine! Thanks for stopping by with your question about purchasing a Disney dining plan for your upcoming visit; since you're going to be our guest tomorrow, let's dig right in!

    Geraldine, at this time, Disney dining plans are only available to guests who book a Disney Resort Hotel Package, which includes a stay at a Disney Resort hotel. When choosing to book this type of vacation package, guests can bundle their hotel reservations with theme park tickets and choose the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan. Both of these plans offer flexible use of meals and snacks for the duration of your visit at an assortment of restaurants all across Disney property. 

    And speaking of meals and snacks, your visit will coincide with the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival which boasts some of the most delicious food options at the many outdoor kitchens throughout the park. I was just there last week snacking on some of the festival favorites from the Disney Parks Foodie Guide; I highly recommend the Tamale de Rajas in the Mexico Pavilion and the Frushi in Japan!

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Geraldine. If you're interested in booking a vacation package with the dining plan, I recommend calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations number to see what might be available for your arrival.

    Here's to a great, big, beautiful tomorrow at the Most Magical Place on Earth,
