    we are planning our first trip and the pricing are a little difficult to understand, if i buy park hopper tickets are meals included in the price we really want to see the xmas parade this year.

    Tickets and dining are priced separately.

    When you purchase your tickets you have the option to purchase base Magic Your Way tickets, or to add the park hopper or water parks fun & more option, or no-expiration.

    With dining, you can choose to pay for meals on your own, or to purchase a Disney Dining Plan. There are three dining plans to choose from - Quick Service, Basic, or Deluxe Dining.

    If you visit during select periods, the dining plan is offered for free. Since you mentioned the Christmas parade, I'm guessing you plan to visit in November or December. The free dining period for those months is November 27-December 2, and December 11-16, 2011. No free dining has been announced for December 2012.

    Hope that helps!
