    We are coming to WDW in oct/nov! Is there a dining plan for families who are staying off property? (Hilton Bonnet Creek). I would love to purchase a plan. Thanks!

    Hello, Ashley!

    My family loves visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the fall. Unfortunately, there is not a dining plan for Guests staying off property. At this time, Disney dining plans are only available as part of some Magic Your Way Vacation Packages or as part of a Disney Vacation Club booking. 

    Since you plan to visit during Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, you may find more flexibility in not having a dining plan. My family prefers not to use a dining plan during our fall visits because we love the flexibility to sample many dishes as we tour World Showcase. In past years, we have purchased Disney Gift Cards attached to bracelets that made purchasing foods and beverages convenient. 

    I hope this helps and, please let us know if you have other questions as you continue to plan your magical fall vacation!
