    We are using our DVC points to stay at a resort but would like to use a dining plan for food. Can I purchase just a dining plan if I am buying park tickets from Tickets at work?

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for bringing your question to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm excited for you that you're planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation and staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort.

    Yes, you can purchase one of the Disney Dining Plans and add it to your Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation. On my last Disney Vacation Club Resort stay just a few weeks ago, I did just that. I called up about two days before my arrival and added the Disney Dining Plan. I really welcomed the convenience and flexibility of the Dining Plan.

    You can add a Disney Dining Plan up to 1 day before your arrival, and you pay for your Disney Dining Plan in full at the time you add it to your reservation.

    What I really appreciate about the Disney Dining Plans is that the options offer a variety of choices that offer different dining experiences to best fit your vacationing style. You can choose from Quick-Service Dining Plan, Dining Plan and Deluxe Dining Plan.

    For more information about Disney Dining Plans and to add a dining plan to your reservation, contact Disney Vacation Club Member Services at (800) 800-9800.

    Enjoy your Disney, Rachel!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
