    My daughter is lucky enough to be marching at DisneyWorld next spring! Park tickets will be purchased through Disney performing arts, and we are told we can purchase additional park tickets for our family. Can I add Dining if we are staying on property?

    Hi Cynthia,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations to your daughter for such a fabulous accomplishment!

    We just recently booked a room reservation with dining by calling 407-939-5277. A wonderful cast member was able to help me price out dining plan options and we chose the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan with our room at Disney's BoardWalk Inn. When we did receive our theme park tickets, I linked those to My Disney Experience Account using the My Reservations and Tickets Link. If your room reservation is part of a group or was booked by a third party, be sure to check the details of your reservation before trying to add a dining plan.

    When I am trying to choose the best dining plan for my family, I actually map out the meals we plan to eat and the restaurants we plan to experience while there. When possible, I check the restaurant menus online to see what the prices might be for our dining experiences so that I can be sure a dining plan is a good value. The Coral Reef Restaurant Dinner Menu will give you an idea of the pricing for that particular restaurant. To find a restaurant's menu, go to the restaurant's homepage and search for the link that says View Menu. Once you click on that link, you should be able to select breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on what meals the restaurant serves. I also call to get specific pricing for character meals or buffets. Since we like to eat three meals per day, my family prefers the Disney Deluxe Dining plan. The plans are also a good value for us because they include drinks with meals, snacks and resort refillable mugs.

    Cynthia, I trust that you will enjoy some fabulous dining experiences! 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
