    Hi! On the dining plan do you have to order certain items from the menus or can you order anything you want? Just wondering because I read that your options are limited which seems like a waste if you are paying for the meal plan. Thanks!

    Hi Michelle!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    One of the best things about the Disney Dining Plan is the ability to order any item on the menu with no worries. Guests using the dining plan are able to choose from over 100 participating dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort, and choose from anything on the menu with just a few exceptions (souvenir cups, alcoholic beverages). You won't receive a special menu just for dining plan participants, but the regular menu offered to all Guests!

    With a Table Service entitlement, you'll receive an entree, non-alcoholic beverage and a dessert at each participating restaurant. When choosing your entree, feel free to choose whatever you like, whether it be the least expensive meal on the menu or the priciest. Your meals have already been taken care of, so you are free to dine as you wish!

    The only time you'll need to choose carefully is when you purchase snacks on the dining plan. Eligible snack items will be listed on the menus with a special Disney Dining Plan symbol. Not to worry, there are hundreds of snack items to choose from, including my favorite, a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar!

    I hope this helps with your planning, and your decision whether or not to participate in the Disney Dining Plan. Please come back and visit with any other questions you can think of  - we're happy to help! Have a magical day! - Diane W.
