    Hello! I'm really confused. Can u simplify the differences in dining plans? We came last year and I didn't remember there bring that many options. Thx!!

    Hi, Danelle!

    My pleasure!

    There are 5 Disney Dining Plans; the most popular being either the Dining Plan or the Quick Service Dining Plan. We love the Dining Plan because it offers us the best of both worlds, entitling us to 1 Quick Service meal, 1 Table Service meal and 1 snack per person per night of stay.

    On the other hand, some Guests simply don't want to take time out of their park touring or pool time, so they opt for the Quick Service Dining Plan. There are many wonderful options throughout the parks and resorts, so you'll have wonderful, healthy and delicious choices using this plan as well. Both the TS and the QS plans include a beverage and entree at all three meals, plus a dessert when ordering lunch or dinner.
    Deluxe Dining offers 3 meals (QS or TS) and 2 snacks per person per night, with Signature Restaurants and Dinner Shows using 2 TS entitlements. Premium Dining offers 1 breakfast, lunch and dinner plus 2 snacks per person/night, and includes Dinner Shows plus Private In-Room Dining / Pizza Delivery. Platinum Dining offers 1 breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks per person/night, but includes Signature Restaurants, Dinner Shows and Private In-Room Dining / Pizza Delivery, all for only 1 TS entitlement each. All 3 also include an appetizer with lunch or dinner.

    All of the plans also include one Resort Refillable mug per person, good for the length of stay.

    Hope this helps, Danelle! Send more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
