    Hi Earnest!

    The Disney Dining Plan is a way to prepay for your meals for your Walt Disney World vacation.  Depending on what your dining plans are, you could save money by adding the Disney Dining Plan to your trip. 

    The Quick-Service Dining Plan will give you 2 Snacks, 2 Quick-Service meals and a Resort hotel refillable mug per person per night of your vacation.  This plan is the least expensive and is great if you aren't planning on Table-Service dining.

    The Disney Dining Plan will give you 2 Snacks, 1 Quick-Service meal, 1 Table-Service meal and a Resort hotel refillable mug per person per night of your vacation.  This is a great split and will give you the option of having a Table-Service meal each day as well as Quick-Service meals as well.

    The Deluxe Dining Plan is the most flexible plan and the most expensive.  It will give you 2 Snacks, 3 meals of any kind and a Resort hotel refillable mug per person per night of your vacation.  On this plan, you could eat all of your meals at a Table-Service restaurant during your stay if you'd like or sprinkle in some Quick-Service meals.

    You can use your meal entitlements in any way you'd like meaning you do not have to stick to the allotted meals per night that you get.  Let's say you have the Disney Dining Plan for 2 nights for 1 person.  Your plan starts from the day you check in until midnight of the day you check out, so it's technically 3 days, 2 nights. That's 4 snacks, 2 Quick-Service meals and 2 Table-Service meals total.  You could use both of your Quick-Service meals on one day and the 2 Table-Service meals the next day or 1 Table-Service on your check-in day, 1 Quick-Service and 1 Table-Service on your second day and 1 Quick-Service and 4 of your snacks on your check-out day.

    Any restaurant that is a counter-service restaurant, meaning you walk up to the counter, order and take your food to a table counts as a Quick-Service meal.  You get a beverage and an entree.  The beverage can be alcoholic for adults (where available) and the kids can choose a specialty beverage like a smoothie, hot chocolate or a slushie.  A Table-Service meal is any restaurant where you sit down and have a server.  You also get a beverage of your choice and an entree.  Table-Service meals include character dining restaurants as well, so using your dining credits for character dining meals is a great value for your money. 

    Table-Service meals on the Deluxe Dining Plan include a beverage of your choice, appetizer, entree and a dessert per person.  Yes, an appetizer PER PERSON.  This plan is great if you're a foodie or if you want a great opportunity to try as much variety as you can during your vacation.

    The best part of these plans is you can basically choose whatever you'd like off of the menu with little restrictions.  Go ahead and order the expensive steak or the rib platter.  It's all included!

    To be eligible for the Disney Dining Plan, you must have booked a vacation package that includes tickets, be a Passholder and book a Passholder room-only reservation or be a Disney Vacation Club Member who booked through their membership.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
