    I am traveling to disney in October for first time with my family of 6, twin 16 yr old boys and a 5 yr old and 6 year old girl. Regarding dining plans, does each family member have to do the same plan and do you have to purchase for entire length of stay

    Hi Tara,

    You must be so excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation. I'm thrilled to say that this is one family vacation destination that really does provide something for all ages.

    The Disney Dining Plan is a fantastic enhancement to your vacation that allows Guests to experience a substantial savings on dining and handle all budgeting from home. Then, relax and order whatever you fancy while on vacation. 

    If your family decides to add the Disney Dining Plan to your vacation, you must purchase the same plan for all Guests on your Resort reservation for the entire duration of your stay. Upon arrival, all entitlements are loaded to your account and can be used as you please. You are not restricted to a certain number of meals per day and one Guest could use more entitlements than another. Flexibility and Savings!

    Come back and visit us, Tara, if you have any additional questions. We are here for you.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
