    I will be traveling to Disney for a conference. We are getting a conference rate for a room. I was wondering if I am still eligible to get a dining plan or if that is only available for booking packages through disney? I am staying at Yacht Club Resort.

    Hi, there!

     Judie, I'm so pleased to hear you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort for a conference. I can't think of a better place to mix work with play!

     You are going to love staying at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. With beautiful lakeside views and convenient access to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, it's the perfect place to wind down after a long conference day!

     Staying at a Disney Resort hotel comes with lots of benefits like early access to FastPass+ planning, complimentary MagicBands, and Extra Magic Hours. One of my favorite perks is the option of adding a dining plan. I've found that a dining plan adds much-needed convenience and flexibility to my Disney vacations, so I completely understand why you would be interested in adding one to your upcoming stay. To qualify for a dining plan, a Guest must have a hotel and ticket package for everyone listed on the room reservation. Not knowing the specifics of your conference or your reservation, I can't be sure whether or not your stay at Disney's Yacht Club Resort would qualify for a dining plan. My best advice is to contact your conference event planner to ask if your booking permits you to add a dining plan for your stay. 

     Since you'll be within walking distance of Epcot, be sure to check out the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Magic will be in full bloom!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judie. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
