The Return of the Disney Dining Plan | Updated!

Beginning January 9, 2024, Dining Plans will once again be accepted at Walt Disney World!

Dining Plans can be added to Walt Disney World packages for the entire length of stay at a Walt Disney World resort for each person aged 3 and over in the room. The dining plan can be added to either a resort stay or a resort and ticket package. Guests can make payments on their dining plan along with their resort package up until 30 days prior to arrival. The dining plan is an excellent way to budget for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation without having to worry about how much you’ll spend on meals.

Quick Service Dining Plan

A great option for families who like to avoid being locked into a dining reservation so they can go with the flow. The Quick Service meal plan includes 2 quick service meals plus a drink at each meal per night of the stay, in addition to one snack or non-alcoholic beverage per night. Guests also receive a resort refillable mug for use during the length of their stay. For guests 21 and older, the beverage that comes with a quick service meal can be substituted for beer, wine, or a single-serving cocktail. The meal plan must be purchased for the entire length of your resort stay and for each person in the room.

The Disney Dining Plan

The Disney Dining Plan includes one quick service meal with a drink per night of your stay, along with one table service meal per night, one snack or nonalcoholic beverage per night, and one resort refillable mug for the entire length of stay. Reservations are highly encouraged for Table Service Meals and can be made 60 days in advance from the start of your vacation. Similar to the Quick Service Meal Plan, guests 21 and older can substitute the beverage that comes with a meal for an alcoholic beverage. When using a table service meal credit, keep in mind that gratuity is not included in the Meal Plan, and servers should be tipped accordingly.

For guests who choose to dine at Signature and Fine Dining locations, Dinner Shows, and select character dining locations, there will be a charge of two table service meal credits instead of just the standard one table service meal credit. Restaurants such as Cinderella’s Royal Table, Le Cellier, and others will require two table service credits. While Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve are conveniently located to the parks, dining plans cannot be used at any of their dining establishments.

Book your next Walt Disney World vacation today! Guests visiting Walt Disney World most nights from July 1, 2024, through September 30, 2024, and booking a non-discounted package with a 4-night stay and 4-day park tickets can enjoy the dining plan for FREE.
