    Hello! What's the latest (how many days prior to arrival) you can add a dining plan to your stay at a Disney resort?

    Hey there, Rhonda! 

    No visit to Walt Disney World is complete for my family if we haven't either tried a new restaurant or visited one of our favorites. Planning ahead for Walt Disney World dining experiences is a great idea.

    There are three different Disney Dining Plans for you to choose from, and any of those options can be added to a Magic Your Way vacation package at least 48 hours prior to your arrival. If you currently only have a resort stay booked, you can change that to a vacation package so the dining plan can be added.

    If you want to add the plan, just call 407-939-5277 to speak with a Cast Member, who can talk you through what will be necessary to add the dining plan. 

    If you are choosing a dining plan that includes table service meals, don't forget to make your Advanced Dining Reservations. As a Walt Disney World resort guest, you can make those reservations beginning 180 days in advance. Some of the more popular restaurants, like Cinderella's Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle, will book up in advance.

    Have an absolutely magical vacation, Rhonda!
