    Hello! looking to travel 4/28-5/5.great deals on priceline, expedia etc, def choosing disney resort, but if i am correct I can not purchase dining plan? Or can I, I need to purchase tix and will be on premises, is this possible? thanks!!

    Hi Amy,

    If you purchase the components of your vacation separately, then you will be unable to add-on a Disney Dining Plan. Disney Dining Plans are add-on options to Magic Your Way vacation packages which require guests to book lodging at a Disney-owned resort as well as at least one ticket day per person in your traveling party. This must be done all together with a package.

    Instead of booking through Expedia, I would reserve directly with Disney. Special Offers will yield the greatest savings. Generally, the same discounted vacation packages that you find at Expedia, etc. are offered via the Special Offers through Disney or a Disney travel agent such as Dreams Unlimited (

    Booking directly with Expedia will not allow you to customize a vacation package with the Disney Dining Plan.

    Thanks for this great question. Wishing you a magical vacation!
