    Hi, we're planning our trip for the september. I would like to know if is it possible to reserve now the hotel + ticket package and maybe include later the dining plan thanks a lot for helping me 

    Ciao Federica! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We love the Disney Dining Plans! For my family meal time becomes easier and more affordable since the majority of our food is paid for before we even arrive. There are so many tasty choices that I find it difficult to choose just a few!

    It has been my experience that if you are booking a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, you do not necessarily have to purchase a Disney Dining Plan at the time of booking. With that being said the Disney Dining Plans must be added to your reservation prior to arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort. Typically you have to add the plan on at least 48 hours in advance (this timeline is subject to change without advanced notice.) If you would like to discuss your dining situation I would suggest calling Disney directly!

    I hope that you have a magical time!
