    Does any of the brunch event eg maria and enzos and California grille on the dining plan?

    Hi, Roxie!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I absolutely love going to brunch, especially when I'm on vacation!  The Walt Disney World Resort has some amazing brunch options, and you can use your Disney Dining Plan to pay for several of them.  To see if a restaurant accepts Disney Dining Plans, go to the restaurant's page on the Walt Disney World website.  You will see a photo at the top of each restaurant's page, and if you look to the right of the photo, you will see a link that says "Some Dining Plans Accepted."  If you click on that link, it will pull up a chart that shows you which dining plans are accepted and how many entitlements you will be charged for each meal period.

    Brunch at California Grill is an experience that I would highly recommend.  The food is superb, and the views of Magic Kingdom Park are spectacular.  According to the Walt Disney World website, brunch at California Grill costs two entitlements on the 2019 and 2020 Disney Dining Plan and Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.

    I also checked the Walt Disney World website for you to see if you could use your Disney Dining Plan for brunch at Maria & Enzo's Ristorante.  It looks like guests visiting in 2019 can use their Disney Dining Plan for brunch at this establishment.  However, the website is currently showing that some dining plans will be accepted at Maria & Enzo's Ristorante for lunch and dinner in 2020, but not for brunch.  Sometimes the restaurants participating in the upcoming year's Disney Dining Plans take a while to update, so you can certainly check back to see if anything changes with this.

    If you would be interested in any other restaurants for brunch, The Wave... of American Flavors at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a real hidden gem.  To experience their delicious brunch, you may redeem one entitlement on the 2019 and 2020 Disney Dining Plan and Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.  The Grand Floridian Cafe is another excellent option.  While the Grand Floridian Cafe does not have a brunch per se, you will find both breakfast and lunch options on their menu throughout the morning and afternoon hours.  Meals at the Grand Floridian Cafe require one entitlement on the 2019 and 2020 Disney Dining Plan and Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.

    Whichever restaurant you choose, I hope you enjoy your brunch, as well as the rest of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  If you have any additional questions as you plan your trip, please visit us again.

    Have a magical day!
