    Hello, We are going to Disney in Sept and I did not sign up for the Dining plan hoping that I can add it for free when the deal comes out. We are staying on site. Can I still make dining reservations 180 days ahead without the plan? Thank you

    Greetings Jennifer!

    How exciting to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in September! The answer to your question is yes. You do not have to purchase the Disney Dining Plan in order to book Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance. In fact, any Guest may book an Advanced Dining Reservation 180 days in advance. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you.  Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical trip, Jennifer!

    Bon Appétit,
