    Dh gets Free park hoppers thru work, but to qualify for the dp I have to buy 1 day tix. Do I have to purchase these through Disney or can I go through another source, and if we stay at a value can I pay an upgrade fee for reg dp ? Thank you soo much !

    Hi Sarah!

         Wow - I am so jealous....what a great bonus!  You are correct, in order to purchase Disney's Dining Plan you must purchase a package, including a park pass with a specified number of days.  You must also be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort and everything must be purchased as a package.  In other words, you cannot purchase your tickets through an outside source if you also want to purchase the Dining Plan.  EVERYTHING must be reserved through Walt Disney World, or your Travel Agent, directly through Disney.

          The great news is that you can certainly upgrade your dining plan and only pay the difference between the two plans.  Sounds like your vacation is going to be one affordable, fabulous trip!
