    Can I purchase dining plan after check in at Disneyworld?

    Hi Demian,

    Welcome to planDisney! It looks like you have just arrived to the Walt Disney World® Resort. Let the magic begin!

    I am sad to say that, at this time, you cannot add a Disney Dining Plan after your check-in day at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. I did speak with a cast member to confirm this information. Of course, since you are there, I recommend checking with a cast member onsite to verify. We like to use a dining plan during our visits but have certainly visited without having one. I always check the menus of each dining location before we arrive so that everyone in our party knows what they might want to order and so that we can estimate how much it might cost.

    To check menus, just go to the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Use the search feature to find your dining locations. Then click on View Menu. Or, from the website, just search for the restaurant and then click on View Menu. My family loves to dine at Chef Mickey's for breakfast. Since one of our girls has significant food allergies, it is important for us to make sure she has some allergy-friendly options.

    Demian, I hope you have started using Disney Genie+. My family finds it to be a time-saver at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Keep in mind that some attractions are not available with Disney Genie+ so you may want to consider Individual Lightning Lane Entry. One final tip - Remember to check the times for the fireworks shows. Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom and Luminous The Symphony of Us are AMAZING. They both remind me of how beautiful the world can be.

    Magic and memories,
