With many guests’ 2017 Walt Disney World Vacations getting nearer, many want to know what is included in their Disney Dining Plan purchase, what the cost is, and how it works.

 

Disney offers 3 different dining plans, allowing guests to choose the one that meets their personal needs/budgets.

  • Quick Service Dining Plan
  • Plus/Standard Dining Plan
  • Deluxe Dining Plan

The Dining Plans work on a pre-paid meal credit system. When you dine at a Disney parks/resorts location, your server will scan your magic band and they will take the appropriate number and type of meal credits for you and your family members. Gratuities are not covered, so at the end of your meal you will be responsible for those, as well as any additional items you order that are not covered. You can pay your balance with cash or a credit card linked to your magic band.

 

Entitlements for the 2017 Quick Service Dining Plan include the following for each guest (ages 3 and over) per night of your package stay:

  • Two Quick Service Meals (includes one entree and one non-alcoholic beverage)
  • Two Snacks
  • One Refillable Resort Mug
  • $46.34 per adult per night, $20.18 per child per night

Entitlements for the 2017 Plus/Standard Dining Plan include the following for each guest (ages 3 and over) per night of your package stay:

  • One Table Service Meal (includes one entree, one non-alcoholic beverage, and one dessert OR one full buffet)
  • One Quick Service Meal (includes one entree and one non-alcoholic beverage)
  • Two Snacks
  • One Refillable Resort Mug
  • $67.33 per adult per night, $24.22 per child per night
  • You can view more info about the Standard dining plan here.

Entitlements for the 2017 Deluxe Dining Plan include the following for each guest (ages 3 and over) per night of your package stay:

  • Three Meals (redeemable interchangeably at Quick Service or Table Service locations)
  • Two Snacks
  • One Refillable Resort Mug
  • $103.57 per adult per night, $37.62 per child per night

 

A few more notes about the Dining Plan:

  • All guests on a room reservation must have the dining plan, you cannot split it so that some have it and some don’t. It’s all or nothing.
  • You must be a guests of a Disney Resort to purchase the Dining Plan.
  • You have up until 2 days prior to the start of your vacation to add the Dining Plan to your reservation.
  • The Dining plan can save you money on your dining experiences, particularly with Character Dining, as the plan more than pays for itself with one character meal a day.
  • Gratuities/alcohol/appetizers at sit down meals are not included, and must be paid for separately at the end of the meal.
  • Not all locations on Disney property accept the Dining Plan, but most do. Always check before making your reservations.

Happy Dining!
