    Hi! I am looking at staying at a Disney Springs resort or a Good Neighbour resort for an upcoming vacation. Do I have to book my accommodations AND tickets through Disney to be able to purchase the dine card, or can I book via the hotel website?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Shona!

    It’s so nice to hEAR from you again. You must be so excited about your upcoming visit. Are you ready to return to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort? Be sure to check out the Know Before You Go guide, before you arrive. It has great information on some of the modifications that have been made, including, what to expect during your visit.

    As far as the Disney Quick-Service Dining Card, you must purchase a package to be eligible to add the dining cards to your trip. A Walt Disney World vacation package includes a stay at an eligible hotel and theme park tickets. I was able to view the option, to add a Disney Quick-Service Dining Card to my cart, once I selected an eligible resort and added ticket(s).

    If you like the idea of having a card specifically for food and would rather book separately, I recommend transferring the money you would normally use for food to a Disney Gift Card before you arrive. It’s a great way to stay on budget and, in a way, prepay for your food before you arrive. This is what my family does and it’s great! Although I think booking through the official Walt Disney World Resort website and adding the Disney Quick-Service Dining Card offer is a much better deal!

    Shona, I hope this answers your questions. Don’t forget to make your park reservations after you purchase your theme park tickets and let us know if there’s anything else we can help with.

    Have a Magical Visit!
