    We are in the process of making decisions about a trip in the fall. We want to book the resort now to make sure it is reserved. We will purchase tickets in the future, will there be an opportunity to purchase the dining plan at that time?

    Hi Brooke!

    I'm happy to hear you're looking forward to a fall trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! It's always exciting to be in the planning stages of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. With so much to see and do, it's good to get a head start on mapping out all the fun!

    If you'd like to go ahead and book your stay at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel now, and add on tickets and the Dining Plan at a later date, you can absolutely do so. Guests can add tickets and dining to their Disney Resort Hotel Package by calling and speaking to a helpful Cast Member (be prepared to provide your room reservation confirmation number), or via the Walt Disney World website when logged into your My Disney Experience account. Simply select "My Plans", and you'll be able to upgrade to include the Dining Plan.

    My family LOVES the Dining Plan, and we're so excited it's returned! With over 500 dining locations to choose from, there's always something to please every palate. It's nice not to worry about pulling out our wallets every time we eat - we enjoy the peace of mind that it's already been taken care of!

    You could always choose to use an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner to help you with your planning, they can also help you build your vacation and add the Dining Plan. Their professional, pixie-dusted services come at no extra cost to you. Yes, that's correct - using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner doesn't cost one penny more than if you were to book your Disney vacation yourself! These Disney vacation experts can help you choose the perfect Disney Resorts Collection hotel for your travel party, purchase Theme Park Tickets, and book Advance Dining Reservations for the restaurants of your choice. They can even monitor your reservation and watch for any discounts or offers that might be available, and help you save money on your trip! 

    I hope this helps with your planning and preparation for your trip this fall!
    Have a magical day!
    Diane W.
