Disney Dining Plan Add On (optional)
When staying as a guest of a DVC Member at a Disney Vacation Club Resort, you can participate in the optional Disney Dining Plan. You do not need to purchase theme park tickets in order to participate. You will, of course, need theme park tickets if the restaurant you wish to dine at is inside a theme park. Be sure to check out my Theme Park Ticket prices.
If the dining plan is selected, it must be applied to all persons on the reservation for the total number of nights of the reservation. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Does Disney Vacation Club Offer Free Dining Plans?
Disney Vacation Club does not offer free dining to its members. If there is a free dining promotion offered, you will have to book your room directly with the Disney Travel Company at http://www.disneyworld.com at their current room rates.
Dining Plan Policy
Disney World and the Disney Vacation Club has implemented a new policy regarding the addition of Dining Plans to reservations. All Dining Plans must now be paid for in full at the time they are added to a reservation. Disney Vacation Club Member Services requires payment in full by credit card.
Adding Dining Plans
In order to process your request for the dining plan, we will need to get your credit card information from you and pass it along to the member so they can have Member Services process the payment.
DO NOT send information through e-mail. It is not secure.
Please call us at 800-610-5791 so that we may take this information in confidentiality from you. We will then contact the member and have them process the request for you.
We will require a minimum of 30 days advance notice to ensure that the member can be contacted in enough time to execute the request.
If you are not comfortable providing your credit card information to the member holding your reservation, you will need to purchase a Disney Gift Card. For the ease of our members we request that you purchase no more than 6 Disney gift cards per dining plan.
*** Due to Disney’s restrictions the credit card provided must be of a person that is listed on the reservation. ***
Advance Dining Reservations (ADR)
Advance Dining Reservations (ADR) can be made by you up to 180 days in advance of your arrival at the resort. Call 407-WDW-DINE for assistance. You do not need to be on the dining plan or staying at a Walt Disney World resort in order to make dining reservations.
