    If we do not use the dining plan. when making reservations do we pay in advance . We are eating at Hoop de do revue, Garden grill, Tony Town square. Also if we do not get the dining plan , are we still able to get the fast passes.

    Hi, Marcia!
    Welcome back to the Moms Panel! I'm thrilled to get a chance to answer a question from a fellow Missourian.

    If you decide to skip paying for a Disney Dining Plan, you will not have to pay for your restaurant reservations in advance. Instead, you will pay the cost of the meals after you finish your delicious experiences. You picked some great dining spots!

    I'm also happy to tell you that dining plans do not connect to you FastPass+ reservations. You get the chance to use FastPass+ once you purchase your park tickets. If you are staying on Walt Disney World Resort property, you will be able to set up your FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance of your hotel check-in.

    I hope you have fun planning your next Walt Disney World visit! Please come back to the panel if you need to ask me any extra questions.

Meet the Panelist: Jen, Missouri

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
