    Want to stay in the Art if Animation resort however we’re not sure about getting a dinning plan, my question is if we can still make breakfast, lunch or dinner reservations if not using the dining plan?

    Hey there, Mayra,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to be planning an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    I've enjoyed two lovely stays at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and loved the fun theming and attention to detail at every turn. I would highly recommend the popular Disney Resort hotel for your upcoming trip. I'm happy to report you do not have to purchase a dining plan in order to book dining reservations.

    All Guests may begin booking dining reservations 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, going online or via My Disney Experience mobile app. If you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you may begin making your dining reservations 180 days in advance for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days). It's one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel!

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Mayra. Please stop by again if you have any new questions or would like dining recommendations. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Happy Planning!
