    Does everyone in the room on a DVC vacation points booking need to get the dining plan? My Wife and I want it, but my Son is only 3 years old and won’t use it as he is a very fussy eater and allergic to a lot of food items.

    Hello Robert, it's so nice to see you back here at planDisney. Thanks for bringing us your question about the Disney Dining Plan, I know that dining is always a big part of my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. 

    While every Disney Vacation Club Villa features either a kitchenette or a full kitchen, exploring the numerous wonderful restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort can be a fantastic experience. Disney Dining Plans offer a convenient way to sample diverse restaurants and manage expenses with your budget in mind. For DVC Members staying onsite, adding the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan or Disney Dining Plan to their reservation is just a call away to DVC Member Services.

    I spoke with Member Services and they confirmed that Disney Vacation Club Members staying on Vacation Points can opt for dining plans, which include a set number of meals and snacks per night of their stay for all guests listed on the reservation. So unfortunately, in your case, you cannot purchase the Disney Dining Plan for the adults only and not include your son.

    Guests who do not choose to purchase a Dining Plan can still dine as usual at all restaurants throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Since you are staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel, you can make your dining reservations 60 days from your check-in date and choose dining options for your trip (up to 10 days). 

    I recommend using the Walt Disney World Dining page or the My Disney Experience Mobile App to view menus for all of Walt Disney World Resort's restaurants. It might help you find food items your son enjoys. Here, you'll find allergy-friendly menus listing food options under Egg Allergy-Friendly, Milk Allergy-Friendly, and Peanut/Tree Nut Allergy-Friendly sections. It's a great way to get an idea of what you may want to order before arriving and speaking to a Cast Member about any allergies. 

    Robert, I hope while this isn't likely the answer you were hoping to hear, it helps with your decisions about your upcoming vacation. Please revisit planDisney if you have any more Disney vacation Club or planning questions.
