    Why can't we try 3 hotels in our 21 day stay and keep the dining plan, instead of losing it because we have changed hotels??

    Hi, Julie!

    Whenever you change resorts, you need to have a different reservation.  Disney does not have their system set-up to allow you to have more than one resort per reservation.  If you want to stay in 3 different resorts during your stay, you are more than welcome to do so and bell services will help with the transfer of your luggage, but you will need to have a new reservation and check-in at each destination.

    What you CAN do is get tickets that will last for 14 days.  Here is what I would do:

    Resort Stay #1:  Stay 10 nights, get dining plan and 10 day Magic Your Way park ticket with Water Park Fun and More option.  Save a day or 2 of parks and maybe a water park option.  You can use these on your next segment.

    Resort Stay #2:  Stay here 3 nights.  Book a room only reservation.  Use up the last of your park tickets (which are good for 14 days from their first use).  Although your Dining Plan credits will expire at midnight on the day of your check-out from your first resort, your park tickets are good for 14 days from first use.  Pay out of pocket for meals.  

    Resort Stay #3:  Stay 8 nights.  Start all over again with Dining Plan, and however many days of park tickets you will need.  Enjoy the water parks during your stay at your first and second resorts so you do not spend any additional money there. 

    I know it is a bit complicated when you plan extended trips with multiple resorts, but it will be worth it for all the magic!  I gave you one example of how you can organize your trip, but the options and choices are endless.   Put together what works best for your travel party.  Good luck!
