    We have purchased a package, tickets, hopper passes and dining for October next year. If the free meal plan comes out is it automatic to our reservation or do we have to request it?

    Hi Elaine,

    How fun that you've already booked your trip for next October! You'll have a whole year to look forward to your magical vacation! That will definitely allow you plenty of time plan for all of the meals you'd like to enjoy, attractions and experiences you'd like to enjoy, and FastPass+ selections you'd like to schedule. Plus with Park Hopper Option tickets and a Disney Dining Plan, you'll be able to experience so much magic and fun!

    Any discounts that come out later won't be automatically be added to your reservation. I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the special offers page and if there's something that you think will fit with your plans, you can modify your reservation by calling (407) 939-1936. The special offers usually have a limited number of rooms available, though, so be sure to add the discount as soon as you can!

    Since your vacation package is already booked, you'll be able to take full advantage of all of your early planning windows. You'll be able to make dining reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) beginning 180 days before your arrival, and you'll be able to make FastPass+ selections for up to 14 days 60 days ahead of time! That will be a great advantage to help you put together the perfect itinerary!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elaine, and please feel free to ask us more questions as you're planning your trip. Have fun dreaming about your vacation, and I hope that it's truly magical!
