    can I get the dining plans options with how they work and what they cost emailed to me?What I have read online is very confusing to me.


    I would love to try to shed some light on the fantastic Disney Dining Plan options available to Guests staying Walt Disney World Resort Hotels with a Magic Your Way Package and Disney Vacation Club Members. 

    Each of the Disney Dining Plan options provides Guests with a specific number of meals and snacks per person, per day of your vacation. Some options, including the Quick-Service Dining Plan as well as the Disney Dining Plan, specify the type restaurant where you can use your entitlements, such as a Quick Service or Table Service location. Also, all Dining Plans offer a Rapid Fill refillable drink mug for each member of your party. 

    From the moment that you check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, all of the entitlements for all Guests traveling in the same Resort hotel room are loaded into each My Disney Experience Account associated with your reservation. So for example, if you made the magical voyage to the House of the Mouse with one travel companion for three nights and selected the Quick Service Dining Plan which entitles you to two Quick Services meals, and one snack per day, then from the moment that you arrive, you would have access to 12 Quick Service meals, six snacks, and two Rapid Fill refillable drink mugs. You are free to spend those entitlements as you please, without any limits per day. Any remaining credits will expire at midnight on your check-out day.

    Cast Members will ask you if you are using the Disney Dining Plan when the time comes to pay for your experience. If so, they will simply scan your MagicBand for payment, and you will sign the reciept indicating your total, including gratuity, which is not included. 

    I hope that helps!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
