    Is the dining plan available to those who stay onsite or just to folks who book direct through Disney or a Disney Travel Agent? For Example Book Contemporary through another site can i buy tickets/dining through disney since I'm a guest resort?

    Hey Laura-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Some of the best magic we ever experience at Walt Disney World is at the end of a fork and spoon. We take advantage of the Disney Dining Plan, I think mostly, to enjoy the Mickey waffles at character dining experiences. What a great value.

    A Disney Dining Plan is only available to Guests staying on Disney property. Your question depends on the acting agent for your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. With a Disney travel specialist, a Disney Dining Plan maybe added to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package at latest 72 hours prior to your check in day. I have written several responses to purchasing hotel reservations and adding a Disney Dining Plan through a third party reseller that I think you will find helpful. They are here, there and yonder. In summary, third party resellers of Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms should act as your travel agent and request the Disney Dining Plan be added on your behalf.

    Theme Park tickets maybe purchased through many avenues and can be magically linked to your My Disney Experience account at any time. I would suggest linking them at least 60 days before your Walt Disney World Resort hotel check in day allowing you to make FastPass+ reservations for your entire trip before you arrive. These reservations will save you hours of time waiting in line and more time for smiles and fun.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
