    I have a trip booked for July with free dining, 8day park hopper and 7 night stay at DCS. I am considering upgrading to an AP. How that would work with the requirement of the dining plan? Do I still need to purchase a PH to get free dining?

    Hi Rachelle! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love that you were able to take advantage of a free dining offer! As an Annual Passholder, I absolutely understand you considering this option as well! I love the perks and benefits associated with my Annual Pass. My recommendation is to call a Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Specialist at (407) 939-1936. The friendly Cast Member will review your reservation and provide information regarding your available options if you make the change. 

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation sounds practically perfect in every way!!!! Seven nights at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort sounds absolutely magical!! I love the architecture and decor at the Resort hotel. It's so beautiful!

    Thank you for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
