    Need to purchase a FL Annual Pass and a FL Seasonal Pass and make reservations at Art of Animation for October 2015 trip with our 2yr old daughter. When should I purchase the passes/hotel reservations/character dinning? Do we qualify for dinning plan?

    Hi Heather!
    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel! I'm a big fan of planning WAY ahead of time. Generally, you can find what you want when you plan as far in advance as possible, and you can be at ease as your vacation approaches.  You can make dining reservations 180 days in advance, so check your calendar and call or go online at the 180 day mark.

    The Disney Dining Plan is available when you purchase select Magic Your Way Vacation Packages. Whether or not you can add the Dining Plan to your package depends on the room type and time of year of your reservation.  The Cast Members on the phone are incredibly helpful when booking-try the phone number at bottom of the page linked above for Vacation Packages to get accurate information and assistance in booking.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.

Some of our favorite events are the Flower and Garden Festival, Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Let me help you plan something extraordinary for your next Disney Parks vacation! Learn More About Amy
