    If I find a package deal on another site where we would be staying at a WDW resort but it doesn't include a dining plan can I add that on later or is it not an option unless I book through Disney?

    Hi Aminda,

    Glad to know you will soon be visiting Walt Disney World Resort. I am sure you will have an amazing time!

    There are many ways to book a room at a Disney Resort hotel, including online agencies like Expedia or Orbitz. A Magic Your Way Vacation Package includes a stay at a Disney Resort hotel and Theme Park Tickets, and it is the only way to add a Disney Dining Plan. To book a package, you need to do it online at Disneyworld.com or via a travel agent.

    Mickey is always helping us save Disney Dollars with some excellent Special Offers. Unfortunately, when you book via an online agency, you cannot convert your reservation to a package. You will need to cancel that reservation and book a new one, either directly or with an authorized travel agent.

    One last tip: remember to book your FastPass+ 60 days before arrival, one of the many Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits. See you real soon!
