    Do you offer dining plans even though we are not staying at a disney resort?

    Hi Veronica!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of my favorite things to enjoy during our visits to the Happiest Place on Earth is all the delicious food! From the Signature Dining options to the simple deliciousness of a churro, you can't go wrong!

    At this time, Dining Plans are not available for vacation packages, regardless of whether your are staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel or a Good Neighbor hotel. I do understand the simplicity of a dining plan option and feeling like everything is pre-paid before you arrive. A trick that I know a lot of people use, is to budget ahead of time by purchasing Disney Gift Cards. You can register your Disney Gift Card online, easily check the balance, add funds and review past purchases. This can give you the feel of a pre-paid experience similar to a Dining Plan. Another option to look into is the multiple Dining Packages that are available for specific experiences. This allows you to reserve a table beforehand, enjoy a delicious pre-fixe menu and receive reserved seating for a parade or show later in the parks. 

    I hope this helps in planning your upcoming visit! Please come back and let us know if we can help in any other way.
