Ok, so I've worked out how to make advanced dining reservations using the disney world website, what I want to know is if I need to inform anyone that I have the disney dining plan. I've booked my holiday in september through Virgin and have received the dining plan as part of the package because we are going to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. However, we haven't got any kind of Disney dining plan reference number so I have no formal way of informing them I'm on the dining plan. Is this an issue, or can I just make my reservations and then tell them I'm on the dining plan when I turn up to eat? Any answers would be very grateful!! Thanks!!
