    I am wondering if annual pass holders have the option to purchase a dining plan when booking a resort stay. I am doing some early research for a 2020 stay. Would it be more cost effective to buy a pass vs. adding tickets? I love having the dining plan.

    Hi Amy!

    Your question makes my heart so happy! I love how proactive you are being with your vacation planning!

    Great news! You absolutely can book a Disney Dining Plan. You simply book an Annual Passholder Ticketless Package. This can be done online via your My Disney Experience account if your Annual Pass is active, or by phone with a Resort Reservation Specialist by calling (407) 939-1936.

    One important note as you are weighing all of your options. If you, as an Annual Passholder, are trying to take advantage of a promotion that requires Theme Park Tickets as part of the promotion, such as free dining, then you would have to purchase Theme Park Tickets as part of your vacation package.

    I love being an Annual Passholder and I know you will as well. Not only do I get to enjoy Walt Disney World Resort throughout the year, as a bonus, the perks and benefits associated with my Annual Pass are phenomenal!

    You have so many options! Please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your magical 2020 Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
