    We are planning on going in October. What I need help with is my best friend is military and how would we sync the dining plan to the military tickets? Or can you?

    Hey, Katie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What a great honor to be able to go to Walt Disney World Resort this fall with a member of our Armed Forces. Walt loved our country and even helped make movies for our soldiers during wartime. 

    Dining Plans are not connected to Theme Park tickets; they are linked to a Disney Resort Hotel Package and therefore everyone on the package reservation is already connected. Only Guests on the package are eligible to purchase a dining plan. Should you want to link family members or friends to your My Disney Experience account which will allow you to share Disney vacation plans including dining reservations then follow these simple steps.

    1. Just choose Sign In or Create Account at the top of the Walt Disney World Resort webpage.
    2. Hover over the My Disney Experience logo on the right and select My Family & Friends.
    3. Scroll to the bottom of the list and select "Add a Guest."
    4. Follow the prompts and questions to send a invitation to join you.
    5. Your family or friend needs to accept your invitation...Easy peasy.

    Disney Dad Tip:Walt Disney World Resort begins taking dining reservations 180 days in advance. If there is a specific restaurant you want to experience and you cannot find a reservation on a specific day then look for a day later in your trip.

    Katie, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
