    Good morning. Question about tickets Military family and would like to stay on property. . If we use the military ticket option (4 day pass) do we still need to buy an additional ticket to take advantage of dining plan? THANK YOU!

    Hi Catherine, 

    Thank you and your family for serving our country! 

    When you purchase a military ticket or any ticket outside a Disney vacation package, you can not add the Disney Dining plan to your vacation. Disney Dining is attached to your ticket and that can only be done through a package.

    I recommend you look at the price of purchasing tickets with dining plan versus your military discount and paying for food. To get an estimate on your food cost, go to Disney's dining site and look at the menus. Price out your meal and compare. It might be cheaper off the plan. Food is the easiest thing to save at Disney when you consider bringing snacks and cereal from home and into the park.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
