    Planning a 8 day trip and half the party is returning home after 5 days , can we buy the dinning plan for the 5 days or do we have to buy it for the entire trip?

    Greetings, Lisandro!

    Hooray for having a Disney countdown and planning your next Walt Disney World Resort visit. No matter how many days before your next vacation, you'll be "home" at the Most Magical Place on Earth before you know it.

    I am thrilled the dining plans have returned. They give me such peace of mind on our Disney vacations and I tend to try new places and dishes when we have one. The convenience and value are such great reasons to add the plan to your vacation package. 

    Since dining plans can only be added to select Walt Disney Travel Company packages that include a Disney Resort hotel stay, you'll only be able to add it to the entire length of your vacation package stay. Please be aware that all Guests in your vacation package party will need to have the same options including the same tickets and same dining plan. Depending on your party size, the number of days you'll visit the parks and other such variables, it may be beneficial to look at booking a vacation package for your party for the first 5 days and then booking a separate room-only reservation (without a dining plan) for those staying the last few days. 

    Have a fabulous time planning your trip, Lisandro! If there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please come see us again soon.

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends.
