    We have a party of 4 staying for 10 days under one reservation/one-room at Bay Tower. One member of the party is only staying with us for half the trip. Are we required to have the dining plan and tickets for this person for all days of the reservation?

    Hi Justina,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms panel! We are so glad you have joined us with your question.

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a beautiful and unique gem in the monorail crown. The incredible views from the large, private balconies are the perfect place to end an exciting day and prepare for your next adventure. It's wonderful to hear that you will be enjoying it soon!

    Should you decide to enhance your vacation with the Disney Dining Plan, it would involve credits for each person on the reservation for the entire stay. Hakuna Matata, no worries! The Disney Dining Plan provides the entirety of the dining credits the moment you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. They are connected to the resort reservation, rather than to the individuals calling it home for their stay. So what this means for you, is that those of you staying for the entire vacation will have extra dining entitlements. This would be an excellent opportunity to try that Signature Dining experience you have been eyeing, like the delectable delights from the brand new Tiffins at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, or a dinner show like Disney's Sprit of Aloha Dinner Show just two quick monorail stops away at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions, Justina. We are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
