    What are my options for buying food at the parks when I am staying offsite (not able to get a dining plan)? I understand I can bring food into the park, but if I would rather purchase hot food in the park, where can I find info on the options? Thanks!

    Hi Kendra!

    One of our favorite things to do when we visit the Walt Disney World Resort is to try as many of the unique dining options as we can!  Luckily, anyone can enjoy the tasty options offered throughout the parks and the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels!  You don't need to have one of the Dining Plans or be staying on property to be able to enjoy all of the scrumptious options!

    You can find information online about all of the incredible dining options that are available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!  You can filter these dining options by location, price range, type of dining experience, and more!  You can also explore all of these dining locations on the My Disney Experience mobile app.  You can even view menus for most dining locations online and on the mobile app!  If you don't feel like planning ahead, make sure you pick up a map of the park when you arrive.  All of the dining locations in the park will be indicated on the map with a brief description of what type of food is served there!

    With multiple styles of dining available throughout the resort, there is something perfect for every occasion!  There are Table-Service dining locations that are like your classic "sit-down" restaurants, Quick-Service dining locations where you generally order your food at a counter, and plenty of snack carts throughout all of the parks.  If you are craving a particular type of food, you will likely be able to find it at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
