Disney World Dining Plans 101

March 7, 2018


 

Disney offers dining plans to guests staying at Disney owned resorts.  In addition to staying in a Disney owned resort, guests must purchase a vacation package which includes a hotel stay and ticket, have an Annual Pass, or be members of the Disney Vacation Club (DVC). The dining plan is a way to prepay for your meals.  Adding the dining plan makes your stay at Disney World feel more like an "all inclusive" vacation.  

 

How It Works:

Each person over the age of 3 staying in the same room is required to be on the dining plan for the entire length of stay. The price of the plan is based on the type chosen and based on the number of nights per stay.  The number of meals and snacks allotted are determined by the number of people and nights in the room.

 

 

There are 3 types of plans at 3 different price points. 

 

1.  Quick Service Dining Plan: The least expensive of the three.
