Tips & Tricks

You wish to take a dining plan for your stay at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida

When you purchase a Disney dining plan as part of a Walt Disney World Resort package, you can :

Save time
Benefit from a certain number of prepaid meals and snacks during your stay – so you can spend more time with your family enjoying the magic of Disney… and less time budgeting for meals during your stay.

Save money
Save up to 20% on meals for children ages 3 to 9 when you purchase a Disney dining plan for your family as part of a Walt Disney World Resort package. Savings on the non-discounted price of menu items offered to children aged 3 to 9 at participating restaurants when purchased without a Disney dining plan. Actual savings vary according to the dishes ordered.

Two Disney dining plan options

To help you choose the Disney dining plan best suited to your group or family, we invite you to speak with one of our Disney travel agents, who specialize in Disney destinations.

Meal packages (DIsney Dining Plan) are pre-payments, transforming your package into an all-inclusive Disney stay. You’ll never have to worry about your meal budget again. Please note that the Disney dining plan, which includes one meal a day at a table-service restaurant, does not include gratuities. Prices below are in US$.

Drinks are included with every meal. Guests under 21 can choose from a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. Customers aged 21 and over, with valid ID, can replace beer, wine and cocktails with other beverages.
Customers aged 3 to 9 must order a children’s menu, where applicable.
The package must be purchased for the entire duration of the stay and for the whole group (aged 3 and over).

Lunch and snacks at your own pace
Don’t forget that meals and snacks can be exchanged at any time during your stay.

Quick service restaurants

Available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, these restaurants offer excellent choices in often highly themed environments.
These restaurants display their full menus in the My Disney Experience app. The order is made on your cell phone (Mobile Order) and you will go directly to take your trays to sit comfortably at your table indoors or outdoors.
Far from the image of traditional Fast Food, quick service restaurants offer the best of both worlds between a quick meal so as not to keep the youngest or the hungriest who want to reach the attractions without delay and lovers of good food waiting. !
Here, no need to book several months in advance.
Your Disney travel planner will guide you through the application so that you are comfortable during your stay.

Table service restaurants

Then, available in the parks, at Disney Springs and in “Moderate” and “Deluxe” category hotels, these restaurants are rich in experience and all possess a unique character.
In this category, we find several buffets with the characters, such as the Tusker House restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, for example.
All of these restaurants reserve several months in advance, even if on the same day, it is still possible to try your luck via the online queue on your My Disney Experience application (Walk up list).

“Signature” restaurants

Finally, we’re talking about restaurants that offer both a gastronomic and immersive experience.
A few examples among many others: the Be Our Guest at the Magic Kingdom park, the Space 220 at Epcot .
These restaurants have prix fixe menu and must absolutely be reserved as soon as your reservation window opens (validate the exact date with your travel agent)
