    We already have tickets, but I keep hearing that the meal plan is a good deal. Can we buy it with a room-only reservation?

    Thanks!

    No, the meal plan is part of a room/ticket/meal package. Room only ressies, DVC ressies, and AP ressies are not eligible.

    However, you do not have to buy length of stay tickets to get it.

    When I looked into it, I was only going to buy 2 days' tickets, while we were staying 6 nights, and was able to get the meal package for all 6 days.

    Correct, you can purchase a smaller ticket than your length of stay, but your Dining plan MUST match the length of time you are staying..

    The MYW Dining is only part of a package.

    Have you considered getting a Disney Dinning Experience card? They cost $75 a year, for 20% discount on over 70 restaurants in the resorts and in the parks. To get it, phone # 407-566-5858 Monday to Friday, 9-5.

    Please remember that A Disney Dining Plan is ONLY available to Anual Passholders and Florida Residents. (Just an FYI for those who didn't know)

    I believe the Disney Dining Plan is available to anyone willing to purchase a package, AAA or otherwise. Maybe the last poster meant the DDE is only available to FL residents and Ap holders? :confused3

    Correct, the DDE (Disney Dining Experience) is ONLY for AP or Florida Residents. The Magic Your Way Plus Dining is only for persons on a package deal. Sorry if I was unclear.

    Could you buy a one-day ticket and still get the meal plan? I was thinking of doing the same thing.

    Yes, you can. That's what I did last month. I purchased our passes from Ticketmanina. When I decided to add the dining plan to my reservation, I just added on two one day base tickets to make the booking a package.

    During the trip, I had to be sure to use the one day pass on a day we would not be park hopping.
