    Hi Jennifer!

    Congratulations on your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World!  October is one of my favorite months to visit, especially because of Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival.  Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan is a great way to enjoy the culinary delights that Disney World has to offer, especially if you can get a discount!  

    You are allowed to make as many changes as you would like up until 45 days before your check-in date. After that date you could be subject to a $50 change fee, especially if it lowers that cost of your package. Just remember that you must make any changes to your Dining Plan at least 48 hours before your arrival date, otherwise you will have to stick to the Dining Plan that is listed on your reservation.  My personal recommendation is to possibly wait just a little bit longer before making any changes. In some previous years, Disney's Free Dining Promotion for October travel dates were not released until August. No matter what you decide, you can absolutely change your mind and change it back again.

    I hope this was helpful and please let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Have a delicious vacation!
