    Ashley from OK Asked

    Can I get the Dining option if I stay off property? Can I reserve a character breakfast if we stay off property? Should I stay on property or off property?

    Hello Ashley! Thank you so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    The Disney Dining Plan is only available to guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can still reserve a character breakfast and other advanced dining reservations for any restaurant, dinner show or dining experience 180 days before your arrival.

    I would highly recommend staying on property at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. You are completely immersed in the magic from the moment you arrive. Guests of the resort can enjoy complimentary motorcoach transportation to and from Orlando International Airport. Complimentary transportation from your resort to all theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs. Every member of your travel party will receive a complimentary MagicBand. You will be able to take advantage of  Extra Magic Hours on certain days at designated theme parks that will allow you to enter a theme park an hour before opening or remain up to three hours after closing. You will have the luxury of making your FastPass+ reservations with a paid admission 60 days before your arrival. Not to mention the fact that each Resort Hotel is magnificently themed and every room is beautifully decorated. The best night's’ sleep that I have ever had was in a Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you need any more help or have any more questions while planning your magical trip, be sure to come back and visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
