    Disney Dining Plan TIPS That You Should Know!

    Good News For You!

    Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World? The dining plans are back! If you are wondering which dining plan suits your family's taste and budget, don’t worry, we are here to help you. First of all, you might want to know the basics.

    What's a Dining Plan?

    A dining plan helps you plan meals. If you have a Disney Resort Hotel Package, you can prepay for meals and snacks. There are two types of plans: the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan.

    Why Get a Dining Plan?

    The main reason is convenience and flexibility. You can make use of your dining plan meals and snacks anytime during your stay at over 200 dining spots in Disney Resort hotels, theme parks, and Disney Springs. The best part? Your meals and snacks are good until midnight on your check-out day! So, you can relax, because even after your check out you can eat in whatever spot you want.

    How can I maximize my plan?

    When you buy a dining plan, you need to maximize it as much as you can and, with these tips, you will do it for sure:

    Book your favorite restaurants in advance

    A lot of restaurants are really popular, so the table service options can fill up quickly. Make sure you have reservations as early as possible. This is crucial to have a perfect dining experience.

    Plan Character Meals

    If you are traveling with kids or Disney characters fans, consider using your table service credit for character meals. It’s a great way to meet beloved characters without waiting in long lines in the parks.

    Maximize Snack Credits

    Use your credits for higher-priced snacks or treats. Disney offers different options, including specialties like popcorn, ice cream, and the iconic Mickey-shaped treats.


    If you prefer the quicker options you can opt for the Quick-service credits for breakfast or lunch and save the credit service for dinner or the signature restaurants!

    Monitor Remaining Credits

    This one is important because you need to remember to keep track of your dining plan credit throughout your trip. You can do this through the My Disney Experience app or by checking with the front desk of your resort.

    Use Mobile Ordering!

    For a quicker service, you can always order and pay for your meals in advance through the My Disney Experience app.
