    We're looking at packages through a Disney booking agent, as well as a third party. I'm wondering if I can purchase Memory Maker and a dining package through Disney if I choose to book through a third party?

    Hi Nicole,

    Although November is a few months away, it's so awesome that you are planning for your trip. Let me do my best to help you.

    Magic Your Way Vacation Packages allow you to combine a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, and theme park tickets, while giving you flexibility with payments. You are only required to place a refundable $200 deposit, and the balance will be due 30 days before arrival.

    But one of the perks of booking a package like this, is that it lets you add one of the Disney Dining Plans. They let you manage your meal budget, letting you pay for them in advance. They give you at least two meals per night of your stay, for each member of your family. Check out the different plans available, and the options they each include.

    The only way to book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package is either by calling a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or by booking it with an authorized travel agent. Beware that many internet sites my only let you book room-only reservations and let you purchase tickets in advance. These tickets are non-refundable, and it would be a problem if you are interested in the Disney Dining Plans.

    Memory Maker lets you bring all your memories back home. The entitlement lets you download all pictures and magic shots taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographers, as well as attraction pictures and videos. You may purchase Memory Maker at any time, regardless of the type of package or resort reservation you have. But if you purchase it at least 3 days before your arrival, you will be able to get it for a discount.

    I'm sure you have more questions. So come back, and we'll help you out.
