    If we are staying at one of your resorts for six days but only visiting the parks for four days do we need to pay for all six days for the meal package or could we just get it for the four days? Also do you you senior pricing on anything?

    Hello Bill!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I really appreciate using Disney Dining Plans while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. They give me the feeling of an all-inclusive vacation, and simply arriving and knowing all my family’s meals are already paid for is simply amazing.

    Bill, when you add a Disney Dining Plan to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package it will be automatically added for the total duration of your stay. If you are staying for six nights then it will be added for all six nights. However, you can use your entitlements in any order during your visit so if you experience a signature dining location, for example, you will be charged for 2 credits per person. If you are concerned that it will be too much for your party, then I recommend considering if this is the best option for you. Whenever I visit with my family I prefer to add a dining plan because it is very convenient while traveling with children, and because character dining is important for my daughter. If I am visiting alone or with friends I usually pay out of pocket for my meals because I am not a big eater and many times will only eat an appetizer or salad. In addition, always note special dietary or health conditions on your reservation if applicable, and talk to Cast Members upon arriving at your dining location. Please note that prices charged are the same for all adults regardless of age.

    Did you know you can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance? You can book your favorite restaurants online, using the My Disney Experience mobile app, or calling (407) 939-3463.

    Thank you for stopping by! I hope this helps you plan the perfect dining adventures.

    Best magical wishes,
