    How do we know exactly what we can purchase to eat with a meal plan? Is there a certain amount allotted for each meal? And how do I know which restaurants accept the meal plan when trying to make reservations?

    Hi Ashley!

    I love planning my dining for my upcoming Walt Disney World vacations! It's so much fun plotting out where I'm going to eat and when. You can see all the restaurants that accept the Disney Dining Plan on the Disney Dining Brochure.

    You can also see the restaurants that accept the Disney Dining Plan on the website. Note on the right hand side of restaurant page, it will list if dining plans are accepted. For example, check out the 50's Prime Time Cafe page. On the right it states, "Some dining plans accepted". If you have the regular or Deluxe dining plan, you may use your dining plan at this location.

    Check out the menus ahead of time on each restaurant's page. The menu will show you the choices of meals available for appetizers, entrees, desserts and drinks. On the regular Disney Dining Plan, you can order any entree, dessert and non-alcoholic drink. At buffet restaurants, you can order the buffet and a non-alcoholic drink.

    I highly recommend dining at Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace and Tusker House
