    My family and I are going to be at WDW for the first time this August. If I make any dining reservations now and decide to purchase a DDP later will I still be able to keep my reservations or will I have to start over?

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip, Christine.  Word of warning: it may be the first, but I have a hunch it won't be the last!  My family got hooked during our very first trip in 2001, so much so that we've made WDW travel a priority ever since. 

    I have good news for you with regard to your dining reservations.  Definitely go ahead and plan as accurately as you can where you want to eat and book your reservations accordingly because those reservations will stick, no matter whether you add the dining plan at a later date or not.  If you do decide to go ahead and add the dining plan, you'll just want to be sure to let your server know when you are seated for your meal.  He or she will almost assuredly ask anyway, but just in case, make sure that you pass along the information.  Have a great time!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
