    Can you explain in detail to me the dining plan? 2 meals, 2 snacks, are drinks included? What is a snack? Does it include salad at dinner or anything like that? Just trying to explain to everyone and they keep asking me more questions.

    Dear Amber,

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us here again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about the Disney Dining Plan!

    I am not sure from your question if you have the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan, but either way I love these planning guides that you can send to your family members and help to take the stress of all of those questions off of your shoulders!

    Snacks can be a wide variety of items, from bottles of soft drinks or cinnamon buns, to Mickey head ice cream, soft pretzels, or fresh fruit! It really depends on what your family enjoys between meals. Each qualifying snack has a small icon next to it that helps you to know that it is considered a snack. There are many outside websites that will also help you to determine the best "snack values" that work for your family. 

    Typically, if it is not a buffet restaurant, Table-Service meals include an entree, a dessert, and a non-alcoholic beverage.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
