    Hello Moms, We are contemplating getting the DD this time at Disney. I noticed a lot of the quick service restaurants at Epcot WS are not included in the list.Have they been added since the list initially came out or are they not longer participating?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heather!

    I am happy that you are considering the ease and convenience of the Disney Dining Plan, I just love busting out my Magic Band instead of my wallet at the end of a meal and using Dining Credits instead of my credit card! Every year, when the list comes out with participating restaurants, I enter a slight panic because the list is SO short. But do not fret, as time goes by, more and more restaurants are in fact added. These “late-comers” are often those at Disney Springs and Epcot that are not owned by Disney, so it does take some time to have the Disney Dining agreements finalized. I have noticed that sometimes, restaurants are not listed on the Disney Dining brochure, but when I look online to make a reservation or to look at the menu, they are listed as “some Dining Plans accepted”, so I would say that is the best place to look for up to date information on participating restaurants. You also have the option of calling Disney Dining for more information!

    Did you know that you can make Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days before your stay?

    Bon appetit,
