    Hello Moms Panel, sending greetings from New Jersey! I've been on the fence on whether I want to add the Disney Dining Plan onto my reservation. What is the deadline for adding it on prior to my trip?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I have always been a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan.  With every Walt Disney World vacation, I can think of no better way to keep our food budget in check.  It really saves us money.  I highly recommend adding the DDP to your current WDW vacation package.  Should you decide to add the dining plan, you must do so no later than three days prior to your check-in date.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  There are many dining options to choose from, but my favorite are the character dining experiences. I love being able to enjoy a great meal while being able to capture some great character photos.  It also keeps you from having to stand in lines while in the parks waiting to get a picture with all your favorites.  Be sure to check-out all the different character dining experiences and set those reservations today.

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
