    So we got the free quick service dining plan and booked at pop century. Would we be able to upgrade resorts without losing the dining plan?

    Welcome to planDisney, Taylor! It sounds like you've got a delicious deal on an upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with a free dining offer! I can't wait to visit myself this summer and use the Disney Dining Plan for the first time since they returned earlier this year; magic, memories, and meals are on tap for both of us!

    Taylor, the best way to see if your existing reservation is eligible for a resort upgrade without losing your dining plan offer is to log into your My Disney Experience account and find your reservation details. Once you log in, scroll down "My Plans" to find "My Plans, Reservations, and Tickets" on your account. Here you should see your existing reservation details, and to the right will be an option to "Change Reservation". Once you click on this, all of your current selections will appear, including options to make modifications (if eligible).

    I tried this with my upcoming reservation and I was able to change individual components such as my travel dates, Disney Resort hotel, Theme Park tickets, room type, and even my selected dining plan. Did you know most free dining offers also allow you to upgrade your dining from the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan to the Disney Dining Plan even if you have selected a value or moderate resort hotel? You can explore all of these options, including the cost differences, to see what options work best for your family's vacation style and budget!

    Since we're talking about resort upgrades, I'd love to mention that Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is my preferred moderate-level resort. I love the laid-back, tropical vibes, and the beach areas with hammocks to relax after a long day in the parks, and my girls love the Fuentes del Morro Pool area and waterslide! This resort also offers the convenience of soaring on the Disney Skyliner to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    No matter which Disney Resorts Collection hotel you choose, don't forget to take advantage of the benefits offered to on-site guests, such as Early Theme Park Entry and an extended booking window for advance reservations for dining and Enchanting Extras Collection experiences.

    I hope this helps you to explore all of the options that will work best for your family's upcoming vacation! Whatever you choose, magic will be waiting for you when you arrive, and I'm here if you have any other questions, or need any other recommendations for your visit! You've got a friend in me, Taylor, so feel free to come on back and ask me anything!

    Bon Appetit,
