    We are staying at Disney resort before our Disney cruise and wondering if you able to purchase dining plan if you don’t have park tickets?

    Hi Suzanne!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited for you and your family’s Land and Sea vacation!  You will get to experience all of my favorite things –Walt Disney World Resort, a Disney Cruise and Castaway Cay during this vacation!!  What a vacation you have planned!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question, and unfortunately, dining plans are only available when purchasing a package that includes both theme park tickets and hotel accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  But, if you are planning on spending some time at any (or ALL) of the four theme parks prior to your adventure at sea, then definitely look into getting the dining plan!

    One thing is for sure…once you get onboard your Disney Cruise Line ship, the food will be aplenty!  I have never once gone hungry on a Disney Cruise Line vacation and guarantee that you won’t either!  And with food included with your reservation (aside from adult-exclusive dining reservations), you can try it all – and have as much as you want!  And if you are pondering whether or not to make some dining reservations at either Palo or Remy, I highly recommend it!  You won’t be disappointed…and if you dine at Palo, DEFINITELY order the chocolate souffle for dessert…it’s delish!

    Suzanne, as you continue planning for your upcoming vacation, please stop back by with any other questions you may have!  Wishing you a magical and memorable vacation – on land and at sea!
