    Hi Marilyn!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It's always a pleasure to assist my fellow guests from the UK, and I'm happy to see that you are considering booking your holiday with the free "Dining & Drinks" being offered as part of a package for us in 2025.  

    It is possible that you might be able to pay the difference to upgrade your Quick-Service Disney Dining Plan to the Disney Dining Plan, but until reservations open on 18th April, we don't know for sure. Please ask The Walt Disney Travel Company International (freephone UK number 0800 028 0778) when you make your reservation or enquire directly with whichever UK tour operator you are using.  If you are permitted to upgrade, the actual costs of doing so should also be available at the same time.

    When using the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan you will receive, per guest per night of stay,  2 Quick-Service meals;  1 alcoholic drink (for guests over 21) or non-alcoholic drink with each meal; and 1 Snack or drink.  With the Disney Dining Plan, you will receive, per guest per night of stay,  1 Table-Service meal; 1 Quick-Service meal;  1 Alcoholic/Non-Alcoholic drink with each meal; and 1 Snack or Drink. Also included in the price of each Disney Dining Plan is a Resort Refillable Mug.  This can be used for unlimited refills of a selection of fountain drinks, including sugar-free versions, and hot drinks such as coffee, tea and hot chocolate, at the beverage stations found at the Quick-Service locations at all Disney Resort hotels for the length of your dining plan.  It's also worth noting that you will find a sink next to all the beverage stations to rinse your mug before your next refill.  

    You will have a lot of flexibility when using whichever Disney dining plan you choose - mostly around when you use your dining plan - you can use it in any way you please from the day of check-in to midnight on the day you leave (subject to meals and snacks remaining on your balance).  With our late overnight flights back to the UK we usually have a lot of spare time on our departure day, so save some of your dining plan to use then - but ensure you use up all your meals and snacks as they will expire.

    Here is a list of all restaurants around Walt Disney World that accept the 2024 Disney Dining Plan, and the 2024 Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan. The restaurant list might vary slightly for 2025, and menu prices are always subject to change.

    If you have any further questions about the Disney dining plans or any other planning questions, please visit us again.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday at Walt Disney World!
