    I know for the dining plan you have to book it before you arrive. The place I am booking my hotel through does not offer me the option of purchasing the dining plan. Once I book my hotel can I call WDW directly and book the dining plan through WDW?


    The Disney Dining Plan is a program that is exclusively for guests of Disney resorts, so if you are staying at a non-Disney resort (which it sounds like you are, from your question), you would not be able to order the plan. That is the case, whether you order before you arrive, or after you get here.

    If you are at a Disney resort (and I read your comments incorrectly), you should be able to book the dining plans now. If your booking agency would not do it for you (which I have never heard of) then I would call Disney before you leave, give them your reservation information, and then have it added to your reservations.

    If you think you are at a resort where you should be able to participate in the Disney Dining Plans, but are still confused as to what you can do, please feel free to send me a follow up question, and let me know at what resort you will be a guest. I can look for more information for you.

    Just go to my bio page to ask me that follow-up question.

    Have a magical vacation!
