    What are the differences in pricing for meal plans for adult and children? What about the difference in pricing for park tickets?

    Hey, Jen! This is a really great question about Disney Dining Plans, so I thank you for stopping by to chat with us about it. I have really enjoyed utilizing the various plans over the years so there's one less thing I have to worry about while on vacation - the cooking. Who wants to leave Adventureland early to go make dinner? Not me! Pass the Dole Whip Float, please!

    Jen, the cost of the Disney Dining Plans can change throughout the year, so I hesitate to give you a specific price right now. I would hate for you to set a budget and then have that price change before you go to book your Magic Your Way vacation package. The easiest way to see what the cost of the different plans would be for your family's vacation is to price out your choice of Walt Disney World Resort hotel and room type, add any theme park ticket, and then click to Select Dining Plan. When you click that button, you will see a progression of the total cost of a basic package through the Quick Service Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan, and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.

    Likewise, there are several different options for theme park tickets, which can also be based on the time of year you plan to visit and can change price with little notice. Take a look at the Theme Park Ticket page to configure different types of tickets. You can set the quantity at "1" adult and change up the different options, such as One Park per Day, Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus to see the total cost. Slide that adult total back to "0" and set the quantity for a child's ticket to "1" to see those tickets price.

    Jen, I hope this information helps guide you in planning your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please let us know if we can help you further.
