    Whats the cost difference between the dining plan and the delux dining plan? Trying to figure out which is best for my family.

    Hi Kathy!

    I love using the Disney Dining Plan during our Walt Disney World vacations! The flexibility, restaurant options and having everything taken care of in advance are major perks for me and my family.

    The Deluxe Dining Plan is the most flexible of the three available plans. This plan offers the most flexibility and includes 3 Quick-Service OR Table-Service meals and 2 Snacks per night per guest plus a Resort refillable drink mug for your entire length of stay. This plan is currently $116.95 for guests age 10 and above and $43.49 for children under 9 and under. I like to mix in Signature dining when I'm on the Deluxe Dining Plan since Signature dining is 2 entitlements.

    The Disney Dining Plan, or the regular dining plan, includes 1 Quick-Service meal, 1 Table-Service meal and 2 snacks per night per guest plus a Resort refillable drink mug. It's a little more restrictive and you get one less meal entitlement per night. The current pricing for the Disney Dining Plan is $75.49 for guests 10 and above and $27.98 for children 9 and under. This is the plan my family gets the most often.

    All of the Disney Dining Plans include a non-alcoholic beverage OR an alcoholic beverage with a Quick-Service meal (where available) or Table-Service meal. Non-alcoholic beverages can include things like smoothies, slushies and milkshakes, where available.

    Please note: Prices are subject to change without notice and the prices listed here are the current prices available. Also, gratuity is not included with any of the Disney Dining Plans when dining at Table-Service restaurants.

    Stop back by if you'd like restaurant recommendations!

    Have a magical day!
