    Hi, I was wondering if there were any packages or discounts for meals or park parking if I do not stay at a Disney resort? I have a timeshare at a nearby resort. I come to Disney every year but can never get the packages because of this.

    Hi Crystal!

    Unfortunately, you can not participate in the Disney Dining Plan unless you stay in a Disney owned and operated hotel.  However, there are various discounts on tickets to Walt Disney World available from time to time; for example, there are discounts for military personnel and discounts for AAA members if purchased through AAA.  To find various ways to save money at Walt Disney World, I highly recommend visiting the independent website  That website has saved me a lot of money over the years on visits to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. 

    Enjoy planning your magical trip to Walt Disney World, and write back if you have any more questions!
