    Can I just purchase park tickets and the dinning plan without purchasing a hotel room?

    Hello, Rachel!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel have the option to purchase a Disney dining plan as part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. Unfortunately, the dining plan must be associated with a Resort hotel reservation. However, you are welcome to buy admission tickets without having a reservation. Many Guests find that using Disney Gift Cards helps them stick to their food budget when they are not using a dining plan. Keep in mind that Disney Gift Cards are accepted at any location that accepts credit cards, so you may find this as an alternative if you do not plan to stay on property. Please let us know if you have additional questions! We are hEAR to help!
