    How do the Dining Plans work? --How much are they worth? If there only worth so much (say $15) can you only get one thing under $15 or can it be multiple things added to $15? Are taxes added on to the price that is listed on the menu?

    Hi Shanna,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this delicious dining plan question to us! 

    For my family, the Disney Dining Plans are a great value and they help us estimate how much money we will actually spend on food during our vacation. We typically use the Disney Dining Plan or the Deluxe Dining Plan. On the Disney Dining Plan, each guest 3-years old and over receives one quick-service and one table-service meal per night of stay along with two snacks per night and one resort refillable mug. The Deluxe Dining Plan includes three meals per night of stay, two snacks per night and a resort refillable mug. The Quick-Service Plan includes two quick-service meals per night of stay along with the same number of snacks and resort refillable mug.

    A quick-service meal includes one entrée and one non-alcoholic beverage for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A table-service meal includes one entrée and one non-alcoholic beverage or one full buffet at breakfast. At lunch and dinner, a table-service meal includes one entrée, one dessert and one non-alcoholic beverage or one buffet on the Disney Dining Plan. On the Deluxe Dining plan, guests also get an appetizer at lunch and dinner. There is no predetermined cost per meal to which you have to adhere. One of our favorite restaurants is Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom. The Dinner Menu lists the price of entrees and desserts. On the Disney Dining Plan, for example, you would simply order one of the entrees and desserts listed. 

    Shanna, always check with the cast member who serves you to be clear about what you can order on a dining plan!
