    Hi! Making dining reservations...when see range $30-59 per adult for buffett/fam style how do you know what exact price is per person/per buffett meal? Thank you :)

    Hi Gina.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.
    On the Dining pages of the Walt Disney World website, the price 'range' shown in the top right corner simply indicates the broad range in which the average, individual adult check would fall into for a dinner time experience. To simplify, ranges are broken into $($14.99 & under), $$ ($15-$35.99), $$$ (446-$59.99) and $$$$ (Over $60) categories initially.

    Actual dining prices vary by location, by season and depending on whether the Guest is a child (3-9) or an adult (10+). For exact pricing for certain locations, you'll get the most precise information by speaking directly with a Disney Dining Cast Member at (407) WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). They will be able to input the date and location you're interested in and provide you with precise pricing information for your party.

    For more precise prices, consider visiting an independent fan site that maintains detailed Disney Dining information such as   This non-Disney site is a great resource for dining information including up-to-date menus and pricing for all around the parks and resorts of Walt Disney World. Choose the Walt Disney World tab and then Dining > Menus to find all kinds of information to help you make your dining decisions.

    If you aren't able to obtain the information you require yourself, please feel free to write me back with the location(s), date of your visit and travel party ages and I'll be pleased to find you the exact information you need. I hope to hear from you again soon.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Gina!
