    If my family were to buy annual water park only passes, when we stay on resort property, can we take advantage of the dining plans?

    Hi Amanda,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this terrific question to us. 

    Currently, yes, guests may call Walt Disney World Guest Services at 407-939-5277 to book a ticketless package. When I called to verify this information, the cast member who helped me emphasized that ticketless packages are sold at non-discounted rates. At this time, ticketless packages cannot be booked online.

    Remember that packages can change, so it never hurts to keep checking. Given that the ticketless package is non-discounted, I suggest that you keep an eye on Special Offers from the Walt Disney World Resort. It is entirely possible that a special offer may appear with the resort hotel and theme park tickets priced better than a ticketless package.

    Also, I am thrilled that you are considering a Dining Plan. We have used the Disney Dining and Deluxe Dining Plans. The Disney Dining Plan offers one Table-Service and one Quick-Service meal as well as two snacks per night of your resort stay for each guest 3-years and older in your family. The Deluxe Plan offers three meals and two snacks per night of resort stay. Each plan comes with a resort refillable mug. Although the Disney Dining Plan is good, my family loves the Deluxe Dining Plan. The Deluxe Dining Plan allows us to savor the dining experience while on vacation. Oh, the food is simply amazing!

    If you do purchase a Dining Plan, be sure to make Advanced Dining Reservations. They can be made 180 days in advance. Restaurants do fill quickly!

    I hope this helps!
