About the Disney Dining Plan

The Disney Dining Plan is a pre-paid meal plan offered by Walt Disney World Resort that temporarily closed in 2020 but will not reopen for hotel guests as of January 9, 2024.  Guests who purchase the plan will enjoy a variety of dining options at select restaurants throughout the resort, including quick-service and table-service meals, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages.

The plan is available in different tiers, allowing guests to choose the level of dining they prefer. The Disney Dining Plan can be a convenient way to budget for meals during a Disney vacation and can offer some savings compared to paying for meals individually.  These plans are a popular option for guests who want to simplify their dining experience at Walt Disney World.  

It’s important to note that not all restaurants at Walt Disney World accept Disney Dining Plans, so it’s important to check ahead of time and make reservations if necessary. Additionally, gratuity is not included in the dining plans, so guests should be prepared to pay for tips out of pocket.

Is the Disney Dining Plan Worth It?

Whether the Disney Dining Plan is worth it for you depends on your personal preferences and dining habits. The plan can be a convenient way to budget for meals during your Disney vacation and can offer some savings compared to paying for meals individually.

It’s important to consider factors such as the cost of the plan, the types of restaurants you plan to visit, and the amount of food you typically consume. Some guests find that the plan encourages them to overeat or feel obligated to use all of their credits, while others appreciate the convenience and flexibility it provides.

Ultimately, it’s up to each guest to weigh the pros and cons and decide if the Disney Dining Plan is worth it for their individual needs.
