    We will be making DVC reservations for March 2024. Do we have to purchase the Disney Dining Plan at the same time we make reservations?

    Welcome to planDisney, Helen, and Welcome Home!

    I was also thrilled to see the return of Disney Dining Plans! Prepaying for meals during our vacation adds even more convenience and flexibility to our trip. Let's take a look at adding a Disney Dining Plan as a Disney Vacation Club Member.

    I took a look at adding a Disney Dining Plan as a DVC Member, just since our reservation process looks a bit different than other Guests. I have good news for you: it is not necessary to purchase the Dining Plan at the same time you make your reservation. I double-checked with a Reservation I have for 2024, and I was able to add the Dining Plan to my existing Reservation. Login to your DVC account and hover over "My DVC." Click on "My Dashboard," and once you have made your Reservation for next year, it should pop up. Click on the blue link with your dates, and "Trip Options" should populate underneath. There, you should see a tile for adding the Disney Dining Plan to your vacation. So you can go ahead, book your DVC trip, and then add the Dining Plan later when you decide the plan that works the best for your party. Personally, I prefer the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan if we are traveling with our kids and the full Disney Dining Plan if we are enjoying an adults-only trip. 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club adventures!

    Enjoy making magical memories!
