    Are guests who purchase vacation packages through Disney and are staying at Disney resorts, able to purchase the Dining Cards that are available with packages to hotels like in the Disney springs area? To clarify, I am not talking about a Dining Plan.

    Bonjour Natalie, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for choosing to be our guest as you prepare for your upcoming adventure.

    Quick Service Dining Cards are a great alternative for Guests who are not eligible to purchase a Disney Dining Plan during their stay but prefer to pay for their meals in advance. Guests who book Walt Disney World Vacation Packages at one of the following resorts can add a Quick Service Dining Card:

    Walt Disney World Swan, Walt Disney World Dolphin and Walt Disney World Swan Reserve
    Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World 
    Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels
    Walt Disney World Official Hotels at Bonnet Creek
    Walt Disney World Gateway Hotels
    Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels 

    If you'll be staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection you cannot add a Quick Service Dining Card to your vacation package, so if you're looking for a way to cover dining expenses ahead of time, I recommend purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the amount you anticipate spending on meals and snacks. Unlike the Quick Service Dining Card, Disney Gift Cards can also be used at table service restaurants, so they come in handy if you choose to have a sit-down meal.

    Here's a bonus tip for redeeming Disney Gift Cards when using Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. I recommend putting the gift card number in the Notes application on your smartphone, and when it's time to input a payment method at check-out, copy and paste the numbers to finalize your order. This saves you the time of finding the gift card and typing the numbers each time you want to order something. 

    I hope this is helpful, Natalie! Best wishes for a fabulous fall getaway, and if there's anything else we can do before you leave, come back and see us again. We're all ears!

    Bon voyage! Bon appétit!
