    Can you get the meal plan while vacationing on DVC points? Thanks

    Hi there, James!

    One of the perks of Disney Vacation Club is that a DVC member may add a dining plan to a reservation without having to purchase tickets. Everyone on the reservation must participate in the Disney Dining Plan that you choose, and you can add the plan up to 48 hours prior to the arrival date on your reservation.

    To add a dining plan to your DVC reservation, just call member services at 800-800-9800. It must be a DVC member adding the dining plan.

    Did you know that you can begin making your Walt Disney World dining reservations 180 days before the start of your vacation? Even if you are on the dining plan, I highly recommend that if you have some must-do dining experiences, book them as far in advance as you can. I love it when someone scores a coveted dinner reservation.

    Thanks so much for your question, James. Have the most magical vacation!
