FairyGranmama- love your name, wish I thought of it.
Anyway…Just being DVC doesn’t allow you to buy a TIW card. Being an AP holder or a Fla resident does.
As far as booking meals plans for different days. Yes it can be done,and no I can’t tell you how. :blink::eek: When I booked our trip for dec, I asked about it. I was told you need to break up your reservation. for example…day1 &2 -one reservation- DxDP, day 3&4 - another reservation- no DDP, day 5 -an another reservation- QSP…confusing, you betcha…I was told you need to plan up front what days you wanted the to do what and then you pay right away for the dining plans. I believe you will stay in the same room but with every change you have to check in and out, get new room keys. etc. Now I have read some people did book and then managed to jiggle things around to book dining plans, but I believe since it’s a fairly new option, half the people (like me) don’t quite understand all the ins and outs.
If you plan to just add the dining plan to the whole time, that can be added at the last min, around 3 or 4 days ahead. I do believe you now have to pay for it at that time. Last trip, we paid for it at check in.
Sorry I’m not more help. I’d ask your sister to check into it. But all in all, we are pleased with using TIW. We usually get an AP and plan 2 or 3 trips in one year. Then skip a year to save up DVC points.
