    Hi there! My family is planning to exchange our vacation club points through RCI to stay at a DVC property. How do we add the Disney Dining Plan to our reservation? Do we have to purchase our park tickets through Disney? Thank you for your help!

    Hi Joy! You're really going to enjoy the Disney Vacation Club experience. You have so many wonderfully unique deluxe villas to choose from each with Disney's signature magic.

    Once you have your reservation all set, you will be able add the Disney Dining Plan that best suits your needs. We really enjoy the value and convenience of the Disney Dining Plan - as you'll discover there's a wide variety of fantastic and tasty food to sample and this makes it so easy. I also love being able to make our dining reservation up to 180 days in advance at most Walt Disney World Resort restaurants. Don't forget you'll still be responsible for gratuities even with the Disney Dining Plan.

    If you don't already have one, create a My Disney Experience account - the hub for planning all the exciting details of your vacation. Here you can book regular and special dining experiences, plus reserve times for your favorite attractions. Everything is connected with the all-new MagicBands exclusively for guests staying on property. These colorful high-tech wristbands serve as your key to the world during your vacation.

    We've always bought our theme park tickets directly from the Disney website right along with our resort reservations. However you'll have no trouble connecting your tickets in your My Disney Experience account if you're able to snag a discount from another site or travel agent.

    I hope your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort is magical and memorable!
