Today, Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members can purchase the Disney Dining Plan without the requirement to purchase tickets.
Note that Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members are not eligible to take advantage of any Free Dining Plan promotions if they choose to book a package without tickets or a package using any discounts.
Annual Passholders aren’t left out of the dining plan equation. Those of you who don’t need a vacation package can book room-only reservations and add the Disney dining plans onto those reservations as well. No tickets are included in these packages, however your reservation will viewed as a package and subject to all package terms. Contact 407-W-DISNEY for more information about adding a dining plan to an Annual Passholder reservation.
The Disney dining plans are not usually discounted for Annual Passholders, but room rates might be. Be sure to check the passholder page of DisneyWorld.com to see if there are current Annual Passholder discounts being offered.
To see applicable Disney Dining Plan options, visit our Disney Dining Plans Index Page.
Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members can select from any of the DDPs (Quick Service, Standard, or Deluxe). They pay the same price, however they are not subject to the peak pricing rates and pay the regular rate all year.
Members must book the DDP at least 48 hours in advance of their visit. As soon as they book the DDP, payment is due immediately (as a result, some DVC members are waiting to add it closer to their vacations.) Disney Vacation Club members can book the DDP through DVC Member Services.
