    If we are planning to stay in a Disney Resort but do not purchase a dining plan, will we be able to plan a character dining experience?

    Hi there, Whitney!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about Character Dining at Walt Disney World.  Although the Disney Dining Plan is wildly popular, it is not necessary to have a Dining Plan in order to make dining reservations (Advanced Dining Reservations).  Simply call (407) WDW-DINE to secure these or select times on your My Disney Experience account!

    I wish you the most fabulous vacation, Whitney!

    Magically yours in 2018,

    Jacqui C.
