    If I'm staying on property at wee, do I have to purchase park tickets to be able to get a dining plan? How long is the dining plan valid?

    Hello Veronica!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to assist you with your plans to visit the place where dreams come true!

    I am a huge fan of Disney Dining Plans. They offer great flexibility, and the convenience of enjoying prepaid meals and snacks throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. I just love not having to worry about our meals when we visit.

    In order to purchase a Disney Dining Plan you must have a Magic Your Way Vacation Package that includes both room and theme park tickets. For each night of your stay every member of your party will receive a number of meal and snack entitlements to be used in any order you prefer. Each person will also receive a refillable drink mug that can be used for beverages at any Disney Resort hotel. The Disney Dining Plan is valid for the duration of your stay, and expires at midnight on the date of check-out. My favorite plan is the Disney Dining Plan, because we like to have lunch at a Table-Service restaurant and enjoy casual dining in the evening at a Quick-Service location.

    Veronica, I hope this helps you while planning. Please stop by if you have more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
