    If we stay at a DVC resort as a guest, not an owner, and they offer the free dining plan can we get that added to our stay?

    Hi, Tabitha!  This is a tricky question, and I hope I am giving you the answer you need.  If you are staying at a Disney Vacation Club resort as the guest of a Disney Vacation Club owner - meaning you are using Disney Vacation Club points  to "pay" for your room, then you cannot take advantage of the free dining plan.  If you are staying at a DVC property as a resort guest, but paying for your room as you would any hotel room, then you can add the free dining if it offered during your stay.  If you are not on DVC points, your stay is the same as any other resort guest, and you are eligible to book packages or promotions just as you would if you were staying anywhere else at Walt Disney World.

    I hope this answers your question!
