    How late can you add the DP to a package before arriving @ Disney? Want to reserve our trip for December 21st or 22nd but unsure about DP. When would I be allowed to make my ADRs if I choose to go with the DP?

    Hi Connie!


    You can certainly add the Disney Dining Plan to your Disney Vacation Package at least 72 hours prior to arriving on property. I highly recommend including it in your package as it can save you up to 20% off meals. To ensure experiencing your preferred dining locations, go ahead and book Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) at Table Service restaurants 180 days prior to arrival. Disney Resort Hotel Guests have a 180-day window plus an additional 10-days benefit to book ADR. So if your arrival date is December 21, you can book your ADR on June 24 for ADR from December 21 through December 30. If you decide to add the DDP later, simply call (407) 939-7639 seventy two hours prior to your arrival date, and a Reservations Specialist will assist you. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.


    Enjoy a most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
