    DVC QS dining pre and post cruise-still 2 seperate plans? (how does that work on magic band?) will we still get mugs for all 5 pre and post like we did on our last family trip? Can never have too many travel DISNEY mugs!

    Hi Denise,

    It sounds like you have a wonderful vacation planned!  A Disney Cruise with stays at Disney Vacation Club resorts before and after will be so much fun.

    I have good news for you, since you like the Rapid Fill resort refillable mugs - you will, in fact, receive two sets of mugs!  I spoke with a wonderful cast member at Disney Vacation Club, who let me know the following.  Since Disney Vacation Club does not currently offer a land and sea package, your Disney Vacation Club reservations before and after your cruise are in fact separate reservations.  This means that they you will have two Quick-Service Dining Plans - one for before your cruise and one for after your cruise, and yes, each member of your party will receive refillable mugs for both of these.

    As to how this will work with MagicBands, another fabulous cast member let me know that during this testing phase of MyMagic+, you may be prompted by My Disney Experience to order new MagicBands with each reservation.  Therefore, you could order two sets of MagicBands, one for each of your Disney Vacation Club reservations, or you could just order one set.  If you only order one set, all of your reservations for both your before and after stay, including dining and Fastpass+ selections, will be linked to that set.  If your order two sets of MagicBands, here is the cool thing: everything will be linked to both sets!  All of your dining reservations and FastPass+ selections should be linked to both sets - so of your two MagicBands, you could choose the color that matches your outfit the best on any given day!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Denise.  Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
