    Hello, I have a current reservation at POR with the free dinning promotion. The dates to book free dinning has passed, but was wondering if it is possible to change hotels to Beach Club. Can extend my trip a couple days with the FDP at a different resort?

    Hello Melissa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on scoring the Free Dine Package with your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. My family always uses the Disney Dining Plan when vacationing in Walt Disney World as it is of such great value. Being able to budget most of the meal expenses ahead of time allows us to relax and enjoy dining at our favorite Walt Disney World restaurants. There are so many great restaurants, with both table-service and quick-service options. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend you download the My Disney Experience mobile app to view restaurant options, make and modify dining reservations, and place mobile orders at select quick-service locations

    It is a tough call between Disney’s Port Orleans Resort –Riverside and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Club Resort. Both are incredible resorts with great dining options and fabulous swimming pools. Disney’s Caribbean Beach Club Resort does have the added bonus of the Disney Skyliner, so that just might tip the scales in its favor. The charm of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside is incredible though, so you won’t be disappointed with your stay here. You are always able to make modifications to your reservation, but since the promotional Free Dine Package offer is only available with certain room types, you will need to call the reservation line to see if there are rooms available at Disney’s Beach Club Resort to transfer your current reservation or add additional days. You can reach the Disney Resort Hotel Reservation line at (407) 939-1936 and speak with a Cast Member about making the modifications to your vacation package. 

    I hope that you have a magical vacation and enjoy your Free Dining Package while in Walt Disney World! Please stop back by if we can help answer any additional questions.
