 Disney Magic Your Way Dining plans and the Cost per Person:

The most popular plan at Walt Disney World Resort is the Standard (or Plus)Dining Plan which provides one table-service meal credit, one quick-service meal credit, and one snack credit (up to $4 value), per person per with over 100 participating restaurants to choose from. Cost: $39.99 per adult / $10.99 per child per night of stay.

 There is also a Quick-Service Dining Plan which provides 2 counter-service (fast food) meal credits , two snack credits (up to $4 value), and one refillable resort mug (soda, tea, coffee -good only at the hotel, not in the parks). Cost: $29.99 per adult / $8.99 per child per night of stay.

The Deluxe Dining Plan provides 3 meal credits (sit-down or counter-service – your choice), 2 snack credits (up to $4 value), and one refillable resort mug (soda, tea, coffee -good only at the hotel, not in the parks) .  This plan offers just way too much food for most people. They don’t end up using all the credits so it isn’t usually a good value.  If you decide to use all sit-down locations, you’ll spend about 4 hours per day in restaurants. Cost: $71.99 per adult / $20.99 per child per night of stay.

Important Information about the WDW Dining Plans:

  • The number of meal credits is based on how many nights you stay in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  If you arrive on Saturday and leave the next Saturday, you are there 7 nights.  You’re credits will be based on 7-nights, not 8-days.
  • All credits are good until midnight of your departure day.  On your departure day, you can use any snack or meal credits for lunch or dinner even if check-out is at 11:00AM.
  • The dining plan does cover the sales tax for your meals but does not cover the gratuity (tip).
  • People staying in other non-Disney hotels can not participate in the dining plan.
  • There are over 100 restaurants to choose from – including character meals, restaurants in the theme parks, and restaurants in the Disney hotels.
  • Some contracted restaurants do not participate in the dining plan – these are primarily found in Downtown Disney and both Rainforest Cafe locations.
  • There are a few locations that are “Signature Dining Experiences” and require two table service credits.  Some example of these:  Cinderella’s Royal Table, California Grill, Brown Derby, Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Spirit of Aloha Luau.  
  • Your hotel room key will also serve as your theme park admission ticket and your Dining Plan card.
  • Children under age three do not participate in the WDW dining plan.  They may eat from your meals or you can purchase food for them.
  • Children must select from the children’s menus.  We recommend reserving some buffet and family style meals to give the kids some variety.
  • Sit-down restaurant reservations may be booked 90 days prior to arrival.   Due to the popularity of the dining plan, advance dining reservatations are recommended because many locations fill quickly.

At Build A Better Mouse Trip,  we happily make dining reservations for our clients (subject to availability).   We make sure you dine in a convenient location at a time that doesn’t interfere with showtimes, parades, or fireworks.  This, and other trip planning services, are offered at no additional cost when you book your vacation through us.

      If the youngest is out of a crib, the best option is probably Port Orleans Riverside which has 2 double beds and a trundle bed. There are some deluxe resorts that can accomodate 5 but those are also more expensive. The Stay 4 / Get up to 3 Additional Nights free is probably the best promotion but that must be booked by March 29th so we should get on that. Feel free to call us at 877-815-6515 to talk about options.
