    Hello Moms, we just got back from our vacation to WDW this July. I'm already looking into planning for out next vacation this time to Disneyland. Does Disneyland have a dining plan and how does it work, if we are planning to be there for six days?

    Hi, Charles!

    I’m so happy to hear that you’re planning a vacation at the Disneyland Resort. If it will be your first visit, you’re in for a quite a treat, especially with all of the recent additions and expansion at both theme parks! I think you’ll love the history and charm of The Happiest Place on Earth. After all, there’s nothing like walking in the footsteps of Walt Disney himself! 

    The dining plan at the Disneyland Resort is available exclusively as part of a Walt Disney Travel Company Vacation Package and based on a pre-paid meal voucher system that's very different from the Disney Dining Plans available at Walt Disney World Resort. The meal or snack vouchers are redeemable at cafes, snack spots and restaurants throughout the Disneyland Resort, but the system is designed more for Guests’ convenience when traveling than money savings, which is often the goal of purchasing Walt Disney World’s dining plan. The Disneyland Resort’s plan doesn't necessarily offer any savings and can actually cost more than buying a meal outright because change isn’t given when the price of the menu items is less than what the voucher is worth. 

    I hope this helps, Charles, and that you enjoy a perfectly pixie-dusted Disneyland Resort vacation! Please write back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
