    Hi, we are visiting in April 2020 and have the Dining Plan, can somebody tell me, if there are any restrictions on the menu, when using the Dining Plan? Thanks Christine

    Hi Christine!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am very happy to see that you are using the Disney Dining Plan on your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort - I love the value it offers across the whole Resort, at the theme parks, the Disney Resort hotels and at select locations at Disney Springs.  I often make use of the Dining Plans and it is up to the discretion of each dining location as to what items are included, and your server will explain the areas of the menu that you may, or may not, order from.  In my experience, I have only seen a few menu choices that are restricted, and not available as part of the dining plans.  In general, you will have a very wide choice.  Also, it's worth noting that if you want any additional items, such as extra drinks, or side items or appetizers, you can order them and pay by another method.  They will be added to your bill, along with the option of a gratuity, to be settled at the end of your meal.  You can pay for these by any method you choose - credit card, cash, room charge using your MagicBand, or even by Disney Gift Card!

    Table-Service reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance, online, or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  You can also call (407) 939 3463 to make your dining reservations.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
