Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My husband and I have gone to Disney the past few years during the free meal plan in September. We are thinking about getting either annual passes or joining the vacation club and were wondering if you can still get the free meal plan with either of these

- Hi Jessica,
I have taken advantage of the Magic Your Way packages during certain promotions and received the Dining Plan at no charge. This year our family chose to join the Disney Vacation Club and get annual passes.
We no longer would take advantage of the free dining plan promotions because we would be required to also pay for a room and park hopper tickets. It would not be cost effective.
As an annual pass holder, I am able to purchase a Disney Dining Experience Card. The card give you 20% your bill at almost every sit down restaurant in WDW. You pay one fee and can use the card as much as you like for a year. If you decide to purchase an annual pass you will be able to read more about it on the password protected annual pass website.
Also, as Disney Vacation Club member you can add the Disney Dining Plan (for a fee) to any reservation. You will be able to use the Dining Plan if you chose to join the vacation club, but you will have to pay for it.
I know the decisions are very hard. Good luck and enjoy your next trip
