    What are the differences between the 2018 dining plan of the previous dining plans?

    Hi Robin,

    Glad to know you are planning a magical vacation for next year. I am planning one too, and another one for next year. And the next...

    We love the Dining Plans since they let us prepay for our meals and not have to worry about how much money we would need. Everything becomes part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. Only problem is deciding on which restaurants to try.

    For 2018, there are three plans. All of them include a set number of meals per person, per night of stay, as well as a refillable drink mug. The Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan includes two Quick-Service meals and two Snacks, while the Disney Dining Plan includes one Table-Service meal and one Quick-Service meal plus two Snacks. Finally, the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes three meals, which can be either Quick-Service or Table-Service, plus two Snacks. All meals include a beverage, which can now be a specialty one such as a milkshake or smoothie, and for adults 21 or over, it can now be an alcoholic one, such as glass of wine or a beer. Be sure to visit the above links for more information.

    One last tip: remember to book your dining reservations up to 180 days before your Check-In. Just visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
