Disney World Meal Plan

Updated on October 15, 2010

If you are planning a family vacation to Disney World and intend to stay at a Disney resort, you may want to consider purchasing the Disney Dining Plan. This is a pre-paid meal plan that you purchase before your trip that gives you credits for meals for each day you are on the plan. Disney Dining Plans are available only to resort guests and com e with 2 options: Quick Service Dining, Dining, and Deluxe Dining. Each meal plan varies in the price and number of meals you get per day.

The Quick Service Dining Plan includes 2 Quick Service meals (including 1 entrée or combo meal and one non-alcoholic beverage for breakfast, one entrée or complete combo meal, one dessert, and one non-alcoholic beverage for lunch or dinner, and two snacks (such as ice cream, popsicles, popcorn, snacks, or sodas) per day. This is a good option if you expect to be on the go during the duration of your visit and will need to eat quick meals in between rides. However, this plan only covers two meals per day, so be sure you make other plans for your third meal.

Guests on the Dining Plan get one table service meal or buffet (including one appetizer, one entrée, one dessert, one juice, and one non-alcoholic beverage), one quick service meal (including one entrée, one dessert, one juice, and one non-alcoholic beverage), and one snack per day that you are on the plan. If you plan to have a mixture of quick meals and table service meals, this may be the best plan for you.

Finally, the Deluxe Dining Plan includes three meals (can be quick serve or table service) and two snacks. This is the option for families who want to try many of the great restaurants available at Disney World and plan on carving out a significant amount of time in the park to eat together.

All Disney Dining Plans are available to guests from ages 3 and up. Children between the ages of 3 and 9 must order from children’s menus where they are available. If Disney resort guests choose to purchase a dining plan to accompany their stay in Disney World, the plan must be purchased for the entire duration of their stay and for their entire party. While prices for these plans vary depending on what resort package you choose, having a Disney Dining Plan can help your family save money and stay on budget for your vacation.

At this writing the Disney Dining plan costs just under $40 per day.
