    Can you get a dining plan if you're already at Disney? And if so, which is the best deal for mom, dad, and a six and three year old?

    Hello Laura!

    The Disney Dining Plan is great because there are so many options available.  My suggestion is to take a look at the website and the different plan options.  Decide which level of the Dining Plan would work best for your family and their eating habits.  Also keep in mind your style of vacationing.  Are you the type of family that likes to make dining a big part of your vacations and won't mind scheduling table service meals each day?  Will you be wanting to experience character or signature dining? Or are you more the "eat when we're hungry" group who doesn't want to make reservations?

    Once you've decided on which plan you'd most likely choose, visit an unofficial website like, which has full menu listings and pricing for dining at Walt Disney World (prices are always subject to change).  I like to price out what our family would eat on a vacation without the dining plan and compare it to the actual cost of the plan.  Then you'll know if the Disney Dining Plan is right for you.

    You must purchase the Disney Dining Plan as part of your Magic Your Way Vacation Package at least 72 hours prior to your arrival at Walt Disney World.

    Please come back and see us again real soon!

    Magical Wishes,
