    Ok so I think we are taking the plunge and becoming AP. I want to book our next trip for after we become AP (dec) our next trip will be 2020 and I can reserve room only. If I do that can I add the dining plan later?

    Hi Kristine! I love how you are planning your vacations! Becoming an Annual Passholder sounds like a perfect idea and a great fit for you! Plus - you will love all of the perks and benefits associated with your Annual Pass! Once you receive your Passholder card, be sure to carry it with you throughout Walt Disney World Resort so you can take advantage of the countless discounts and offers available to Passholders!

    Great news! You absolutely can book a Disney Dining Plan. You simply book an Annual Passholder Ticketless Package. This can be done online via your My Disney Experience account if your Annual Pass is active, or by phone with a Resort Reservation Specialist by calling (407) 939-1936.

    For future reference, if you, as an Annual Passholder, are trying to take advantage of a promotion that requires Theme Park Tickets as part of the promotion, such as free dining, then you would have to purchase Theme Park Tickets as part of your vacation package.

    I'm so excited for you! I know you are going to love your Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass!!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
