    We are travelling to WDW at the end of April. Tickets and resort are taken care of but we are now thinking of adding the dining plan. Can we add it the day we arrive, or slightly before?


    Thanks for your question!

    You can add a Disney Dining Plan to your reservations as late as 48 hours prior to the start of your trip. So if you are arriving on a Saturday, you want to have it done by late Wednesday, to be safe. Remember that there are three kinds of plans. They are;
    1. Disney Quick Service Dining Plan
    2. Disney Dining Plan (standard version)
    3. Disney Deluxe Dining Plan
    One of the things I love about the Disney Dining Plans is how easy it is to check on how many credits you have remaining during your trip. The three easiest are;
    • When you use the plan at a restaurant, the receipt shows your new balances
    • Ask your hotel front desk to print out a current balance
    • View your remaining credits on the My Disney Experience App
    Write us back if you have any more questions!

    Have a Magical (and delicious) Vacation!
