    May I use dining plan when making reservations with DVC points?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Fernanda. I'm glad you've dropped by with your question.

    When I was a brand new Disney Vacation Club Member I wondered about this very topic, so I'm happy to chat with you today. Fernanda, currently as the Walt Disney World Resort is operating in its phased reopening stage, Disney Dining Plans are not being offered. Previously Disney Vacation Club Members were able to add any of the dining plan options onto their stay by calling into Member Services at least 48 hours before check-in. I would recommend keeping a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog in case Dining Plans are reintroduced.

    Fernanda, while you aren't able to utilize the Disney Dining Plans currently, you still are able to enjoy a plethora of delicious dishes all around the Walt Disney World Resort. If you're hoping to get that "all-inclusive" feel, I would encourage you to browse the menus of restaurants you're planning to visit, come up with a budget and then purchase Disney Gift Cards in advance of your trip. My family and I took this approach just this past August and it was a great alternative to the dining plans. 

    Fernanda, I hope this helps a you are planning out your next trip "home." Please come on back to planDisney with any other questions you might have. We are all EARS.
