rookie dining plan question

I'm pricing out our options right now for staying onsite vs offsite. We would have a timeshare offsite, and a value resort if we stayed onsite. The price difference would be about $35 for the week. (pre addition of the dining plan)

So...the dining plan question...do I have to stay on property to get the dining plan? When I priced it out, it seems like a good deal for us to use and it would also take one thing out of the budget planning for spending money if we pay in advance.

Thanks!!!

Yes, you have to stay on-site to get the dining plan. You have to have a Magic Your Way Package reservation which includes a park ticket purchase. Room only reservations do not allow you to add on the dining plan.

Thanks Figgie!

Hubbs and I will just have to look at our two options and decide which offers the perks we want. Being able to buy the dining plan is a plus in the on site reservation package.

So if I do a room only reservation for right now and decide I want a package later on, will I need to cancel my existing room only and book a new package? Or can I add it to my room only later?
