    Are trip is coming up VERY fast, we leave sept 11. We will be staying at a near by resort(not Disney) curious as to if you need to stay at Disney to purchase the dining plan? and best ways to save $ in the parks. thank you Lindsay!

    Hi Jesse,

    I'm so excited for you and your upcoming trip; it is less than a month away!

    And as you may have suspected, you do need to be a Walt Disney World resort guest to purchase the dining plan.  

    As for saving money, there is actually a website dedicated to helping guests make the most of their dollar at WDW:  Just click on the Walt Disney World over on the left to begin exploring. I recommend the sections on "Other Disney World Savings & Information" as well as "Meals, Snacks, & Drinks" as great starting points. 

    Have a wonderful trip & thank you for visiting the Moms Panel.
