    Is there a way I can sign up for the a meal plan if I already have park-hopper tickets and hotel reservations? Family of 5: 2 adults + 3 kids

    Hi Susan,

    Typically you can only add the Disney Dining Plan to your reservation if you have purchased a ticket-inclusive package at at Disney resort.  Annual passholders and DVC members also have the option of including the Disney Dining Plan with their reservation. 

    If you already have your theme park tickets, you may not be able to add the Disney Dining Plan to your reservation, but it certainly doesn't hurt to ask.  Call the travel agent or Disney reservation specialist with whom you booked your resort.  Ask them if it would be possible to add the Disney Dining Plan at this time.  Be sure to do this at least 48 hours before your arrival because dining plans cannot be added under any circumstances beyond that point.  Keep in mind that the Disney Dining Plan must be paid for upon booking.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that they will permit you to add this feature to your vacation package.  My family has always enjoyed the Disney Dining Plan and we certainly appreciate the money it saves us while traveling to our happy place!

    Wishing you a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
