    I have a friend I'm helping with her family's disney vacation and have run into a question I can't answer. Is there a way to add a dining plan to park hopper without staying on property?

    Hi there, Torry!

    The only way to purchase the Disney Dining Plan is to be a Guest at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    The Magic Your Way packages your friend can purchase through the Walt Disney Travel Company (or an authorized Disney reseller) are the best for including accommodations, tickets, and meals.

    Annual Passholders are exempt from this rule; as long as the Passholder is a Guest at a Disney hotel, s/he can purchase the plan without buying a full package, as s/he won't need the tickets.

    Have fun planning!

    See you later, celebrator,
