    Can we choose how many days we want the dining plan? We don't need all six nights we'll be at the resort.

    Dear Jennifer,
    We are delighted to be able to help you plan your vacation! We really appreciate you stopped by with your question.
    My family loves adding a dining plan every time we visit. It gives us so much freedom and flexibility! Nobody has to worry about prices because our meals have already been paid for, and we get to really focus on the delectable offerings rather than the cost.
    The dining plan is connected to your vacation package. Therefore, if you add it, it will be for your entire stay and for all members that your reservation is under. 
    If your family is into character dining like mine, adding the Disney Dining Plan to your six-night stay will give you the chance to book SIX different dining character experiences! To be super honest with you, some of our family's BEST memories come from our character meals. Believe it or not, my 81-year-old dad is one of the most enthusiastic members in our party when it comes to getting pictures with beloved characters during these experiences! 

    Below is my list of six of the most highly recommended character dining locations, 
    -Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort
    -1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian
    -'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
    -Cape May Cafe in Disney's Beach Club Resort
    -The Garden Grill in Epcot, and, of course, 
    -Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park 
    This list could go on and on, and in this link, you will see all character meal experiences for you to choose from. Once you are immersed in the magic, you will want to experience all the pixie dust you possibly can so I would reconsider your plan and go for a dining plan for your length of stay!
    Jennifer, we'll be right hEAR waiting for you to bring us more questions about your upcoming trip. 
    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
