    HELP! Going to Disney for 5 cruise for 4 Disney for 3. Do I have too have 2 separate res for Hotel. If so is the only way to get DD plan on each res is to buy tickets which would cost 400 more than if my tickets were on the 1st part of the trip. Thank y

    Hi Leanne,

    I think you are correct about your two separate resort reservations and the fact that you would have to purchase at least one day's worth of tickets on each reservation in order to qualify for the dining plan.  If you had all of your Disney days scheduled either before or after your cruise, all 8 land days would be included in the dining plan.

    If I were in your position, I might consider purchasing the Dining Plan for the first half of the vacation.  You can purchase a park pass for the entire 8 days that you'll spend in the parks, so you'll still be able to take advantage of those savings.  For the time you spend in WDW after your cruise I recommend paying out of pocket for your meals.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
