    Before Covid, if I had a dining plan, I could combine a certain number of snack entitlements and have it count as a quick service meal entitlement (I think it was three snacks). Is that allowed with the current dining plans in 2024?

    Hi Doug!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    We are very excited to see the return of the Disney dining plans - I love them for the flexibility when using them, and for the way they enable us to budget for our food (well, most of it!) while we are vacationing at Walt Disney World.

    There is a change to the new dining plans in that substitutions are no longer allowed.  So snacks cannot be exchanged for a quick-service meal, nor can quick-service meals be exchanged for a small amount of snacks.  It was always the case that table-service and quick-service meals cannot be interchanged, and this remains for 2024.  

    However, there is still a lot of flexibility when using the Disney dining plans - mostly around when you use your dining plan - you can use it in any way you please from the day of check-in to midnight on the day you leave (subject to meals and snacks remaining on your balance).  So if you are spending time at the parks or around the Resort hotel after your check-out time, you can still make use of what is left of your dining plan.

    Restaurants across the whole Resort that accept a Disney Dining Plan are listed here.  Table-service restaurants require dining reservations, which can be made up to 60 days in advance, either online or by using your My Disney Experience app.  You can be more spontaneous with your choice of Quick-service restaurants as no reservations can be made for those.

    When using the Disney Dining Plan, for each night of stay, each guest will receive 1 Table-Service Meal; 1 Quick-Service meal; 1 Alcoholic/Non-Alcoholic drink with each meal; and 1 Snack or Drink.  The Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan provides 2 Quick-Service meals;  1 Alcoholic/Non-Alcoholic drink with each meal; and 1 Snack or Drink.

    Also Included in the price of each Disney Dining Plan is a Resort Refillable Mug.  This can be used for unlimited refills of a selection of fountain drinks, including sugar-free versions, and hot drinks such as coffee, tea and hot chocolate, at the beverage stations found at the Quick-Service locations at all Disney Resort hotels for the length of your dining plan.  It's also worth noting that you will find a sink next to all the beverage stations so you can rinse your mug before your next refill.  

    If you have any further questions about the Disney dining plans or any other planning questions, please visit us again.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation at Walt Disney World.
