    If I don't have a dining plan, can I pay de menues in the different restaurants or counter service?

    Hi Claudia and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing us your question about the Disney Dining Plan!

    When visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, many guests choose to purchase the Disney Dining Plan to save some money and so that their meals are pre-paid before their trip. It’s one less thing to think about while they are on vacation and gives them the freedom to just order from the menu and scan their MagicBand to take care of the bill for their meals at quick service and table service restaurants on Disney property.

    Claudia, you do not have be on the Disney Dining Plan to be able to order off the menu. You would pay for your meals just as you would when visiting any restaurant. 

    Did you know that when you are a Disney Resort hotel guest, you can link a credit card to your My Disney Experience account and pay for your purchases with a tap of your MagicBand? It’s just one of the benefits of being a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest.

    Claudia, I see that you’re from Argentina. If you are interested making any kind of reservations for dining or resort hotels, you can reach out to an independent travel agent. They will be able to help you with all your accommodations and can tell you about special offers that may be available to you when you’re ready to book your magical vacation. 

    Thanks again for bringing us your question! Please feel free to stop by again soon!
