Disney Dining Plan Details

wdw-chefmickeysOne of the things I get the most questions about when a client books a Disney vacation is, “What is the Disney Dining Plan and is it worth it?”

Well, after having done the dining plan myself, I will say that “YES, it is definitely worth it!”  There are 3 different Disney Dining Plans and one is bound to work for your family.  The biggest savings the Dining Plan offers is in character dining experiences.

Disney dining plans are options available exclusively to Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels with Magic Your Way Vacation Packages.

How Disney Dining Plans Work

  • When booking your vacation, purchase one of the Magic Your Way Vacation Packages that includes a Disney dining plan.
  • While vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort, choose from over 100 select restaurants available.
  • Present your Key to the World card to your server or cashier prior to ordering. The Key to the World card electronically monitors your party’s allocated meals.
  • Track your meals with the easy-to-read receipt your server will provide you, which displays your remaining meal balance.
  • Redeem your meals in any order throughout your package stay until each person’s meal total is complete.

Available Disney Dining Plans

To take advantage of a Disney dining plan, you must purchase one of the following Magic Your Way Vacation Packages that include a Disney dining plan.
