    We are planning to visit the Disneyland resort this coming August. I will have my boys who will want time to do their own things. I was curious if there is a Dining plan offered? I thought if they have a day in the park they would be able to buy food

    Hello, Shannon! Welcome to planDisney.

    How exciting to hear that you have a Disneyland Resort trip planned this year! I know you and your boys will love it.

    The summertime is a wonderful time to visit and experience water rides, such as Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure Park. It is also the perfect time to enjoy a cold treat from Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor and Clarabelle's Hand-Scooped Ice Cream.

    Although the Disneyland Resort does not offer dining plans, I do have another idea for you: Disney Gift Cards. You can purchase them online or in person at various retailers. You can also buy them when you arrive at the resort. Disney Gift Cards can be used to pay for meals, souvenirs, and so much more. They never expire, so if you do not use all of the funds on the card, you can save the card for your next trip or to shop at the Disney Store. If you think you would like to reload a Disney Gift Card, I recommend purchasing a physical card as they can be reloaded at any Disney location that sells Disney Gift Cards.

    Tip: Be sure to take a picture of the back of your Disney Gift Card for security reasons and as a quick way to reference the card number.

    Shannon, I hope you find this helpful. I wish you and your boys the happiest visit to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Your Pal,
