    I have reservations for my family (party of 11) June 19-25. After reviewing my reservation I noticed the Dining card was not on it. Has this program been canceled? Also, when will I receive the package of information. When will the balance be charged?

    Hi Diane! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    Oh boy! Only a couple of months until you arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth! With a family of eleven, I'm sure there was a ton of planning that has already gone into this trip! I cannot think of a better destination than the Walt Disney World Resort to spend time together as a family. I'm sure you are going to make many lasting memories that will be cherished forever!

    Currently, the Disney Dining Plan is not available at the Walt Disney World Resort and can not be added to your vacation package. I am optimistic that we will see a return of the dining plan in the future but for the time being, this is not the case. Your vacation package should include your resort accommodations, ticket package, and any additional services you may have added on. If you enjoy the comfort of having your meals paid for ahead of time, I recommend purchasing Disney Gifts Cards before you arrive for the amount you think you might spend. This way you can use these gift cards to pay for your meals. It's a great way to have this cost already factored in.

    In regards to having any type of welcome package sent your way, Disney has created the My Disney Experience App to provide you with much of this information in the palm of your hand. Simply download the app on your mobile device and you will be able to link all your information to your account. Your resort accommodations, ticket package, and interactive maps will be available to you along with much more. Once you arrive onsite, you will be able to find printed maps and Resort information at many different locations all around.

    Lastly, the balance of your vacation package will be due 30 days before your arrival date. I suggest making this payment on time to avoid any issues with your reservation. If you have any questions regarding your payment, you can always reach out to the Walt Disney World Resort to speak with a friendly Cast Member!

    Diane, I hope you find this information helpful on your upcoming visit! Have an amazing time celebrating with your family!

    See ya real soon!
