    Can a person buy dining plans staying at a Disney Spring Resort Hotel?

    Hi Jer,
    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your question.

    You must be so excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! There are so many perks that come with staying in a Disney Springs Area Resort Area Hotel.  You get bus transportation to the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks and two Water Parks, Extra Magic Hours, and FastPass+ selections at 60 days prior to arrival.

    Unfortnately, Jer, you may only purchase a Disney Dining Plan when staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  However, if you'd like to stay on a budget while eating at the Walt Disney World Resort, I highly recommend using Disney gift cards to help with your planning.  My family has had great success with this method and with a little research, we are able to stay on budget throughout our trip.  Any extra cash we have left on our gift cards at the end of the trip is used for souvenirs or treats to bring home to our family and friends.

    Please come see us again with any additional questions you may have about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
