    Are dining plans good value?

    Hi there, Stacey! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    My family almost always purchases the Disney Dining Plan because we love the incredible value and convenience that it provides. My little ones look forward to having breakfast with their favorite characters each morning, while I love not having to worry about the cost of it all. 

    One of the reasons that the Disney Dining Plan works so well for my family is that we love character, buffet, and family-style meals. As these meals are often among the most expensive, it really makes financial sense for us. If you are planning on sharing a lot of meals or ordering the cheapest options on the menu, you may want to run the numbers to see which plan would be a good value for you.

    Stacey, to tailor the Disney Dining Plan to your family, there are actually four different plans that you can choose from. Each plan includes two snack credits per night of your stay and a Rapid Refill Mug. 

    The Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan includes two quick-service entitlements per person per night. This is the perfect plan for the family who is always on the go. 

    The Disney Dining Plan includes one table-service entitlement and one quick-service entitlement per person per night of your stay. This is the classic dining plan and the one that my family always picks. 

    The all-new Disney Dining Plan Plus includes two entitlements per night of your stay. These entitlements can be used for either quick service or table service meals, depending on your plans, and appetite, for the day. 

    The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes three entitlements that can be used for either a quick service meal or a table service meal. If redeemed for a table service meal, they also include an appetizer! 

    As you can see, Stacey, there is a Disney Dining Plan to fit every budget and dining style.

    Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical getaway! 

    We hope to see you real soon!
