    Is there a time frame to change a dining plan? I have a trip planned in September and may decide to upgrade but wanted to be sure I had time.

    Hey there, Linda!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm happy to help a fellow Tennessean!

    I absolutely love using the Dining Plans and knowing that all of our meals are included in the total price of our vacation. But I definitely understand the difficulty in choosing which plan is right for your family. The good news is that there are plenty of options and there is plenty of time left for you to decide! If you want to add a dining plan to your existing reservation or upgrade your dining plan, you can do that at any time as long as it is within 24 hours of your arrival. If you decide that you want to downgrade your dining plan, you need to do that prior to 30 days of your arrival in order to avoid a change fee. Regardless of what you decide, you'll just need to call the reservation line and a friendly Cast Member should be able to assist you.

    Also, there is a Free Dining Plan Offer that is currently available during your upcoming travel dates. So if you haven't already done so, you might want to call and check the availability during your upcoming stay. It's such a great deal, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's still available for you!

    Thanks again so much for your question and please let us know if we can help with anything else. Have a magical day!
