    We have not booked a Disney package (will do Room Only on Disney property). We will probably purchase park tickets through Undercover Tourist. Given this set-up, can we add a dining plan to this? Thanks!

    No. The DDP can only be added as a package with room+tickets+dining. The exceptions are: military promos, AP ticketless packages, or staying DVC on points.

    Tickets purchased outside the park are only a small discount and if you want the DDP you can only do it with a package. Depending on when you go you could be going during a time of free dining. If that were the case it would more than pay the difference in what tiny discount you would get at undercover tourist!

    Is it possible to have a regular, not deluxe, dining plan with the setup I described? We are not going during free dining. Thanks for the help!

    I think I read this wrong the first time. DDP = Disney Dining Plan or DDP=Deluxe Dining Plan? Thank you!

    DDP = Disney Dining Plan
    DxDDP = Deluxe Disney Dining Plan
    QSDP = Quick Service Dining Plan, also referred to as Counter Service

    It does not matter which plan you are talking about or whether it's free or paid dining. You can only get any dining plan as part of a package purchased directly from Disney or one of its authorized travel agents (e.g. AAA, etc)

    FWIW, I have a hard time considering over $90 in savings (on 3 tickets) to be "tiny". :confused3 Is it a fraction of the cost? Sure. But tiny? Nope.




    OP, to get the dining plan with a normal reservation, free or paid-for, you have to have a package. A package is room, dining plan, and tickets. With "free dining" they have started requiring at least a 2 day ticket for each person. With paid-for dining plan I think you can still get as low as a 1 day ticket for each person in the party.

    As others have mentioned, there are AP dining plan packages where you don't have to have the ticket, and with a DVC stay you don't have to have the tickets either. (and, it seems a military promo)

    But if you don't qualify for those, you will be buying tickets with the package.

    Did you get an additional discount? I'm looking at the 4, 5 and 6 day tickets and the savings are $5-$10 per person. Maybe not "tiny" but not near the $30+ pp you are seeing.
