    I'm headed to WDW later this year and taking advantage of the free dining promotion. Will I be allowed to upgrade to an annual pass during that trip without losing the free dining offer?

    Hi Ashley,

    Free Dining Plan: three of my favorite words. My family and I recently came back from Walt Disney World Resort, and we were able to take advantage of this Special Offer. It is SO convenient and helpful on my wallet. Thank you Mickey!

    A few years ago, I had forgotten to add the Park Hopper Option to the Theme Park Tickets, part of my Free Dining Plan reservation. But on the first day I visited Guest Relations and they took care of everything. Many Guests upgrade these Tickets to an Annual Pass, and my suggestion is to do it right away in order to take advantage of some of the extra perks the Passes bring, such as complimentary Disney PhotoPass Service downloads, and discounts on food and merchandise.

    One last tip: the My Disney Experience mobile app can do so much today. One of the latest enhancements is mobile order, available for most Quick Service restaurants inside the Theme Parks. And you can even redeem your Dining Plan entitlements. Happy planning!
