    1. Can I purchase the meal plans without staying at a disney hotel? 2. We are a family of 7. If we do need to stay at a disney hotel to purchase the meal plans, can we just purchase 4 even though our hotel will sleep us all?

    Hi there, Mary Beth!

    In order to qualify for the Disney Dining Plan, you must be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort and have purchased Magic Your Way Tickets.

    The exceptions to this are offered to Annual Passholders, who do not need to purchase additional tickets, and Disney Vacation Club members.

    As a rule, each person whose name appears on the Resort reservation will be required to purchase the Disney dining Plan (except, of course, for those under three years old).

    Remember to take a look at the different levels of Plan available to Guests. It's likely that you'll find one to meet your family's needs.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
