    Hi! Planning our first trip--is the cost of the Disney Dining Plan the same all year round, or is it less expensive during value season? Can you tell me the costs? Thank you!

    In previous years, the cost of the Disney Dining Plan had been the same year round. However, during 2010 the Dining Plan will have variable pricing based on the dates of your travel. The short answer to your question is yes, the Dining Plan is less expensive during value season than it is during peak season.

    The cost issue is more complicated. The pricing is different for each level of Dining Plan: basic, quick serve, premium, platinum, etc. For the basic dining plan, the pricing is as follows:

    • 1/01/10 - 2/11/10, 4/11/10 - 6/03/10, 8/15/10 -12/16/10 is $41.99 per night per adult (ages 10 and up), $11.99 per night for children (ages 3-9).

    • 2/12/10 - 4/10/10, 6/04/10 - 8/14/10, 12/17/10 - 12/31/10 is $46.99 per night per adult (ages 10 and up), $12.99 per night for children (ages 3-9).

    Bear in mind that dates and prices are subject to change, and the dates themselves might be slightly different depending on whether you are staying at a Disney value, moderate, or deluxe resort.

    To work out the exact package details that are right for you, I suggest you speak directly with an agent at 407-W-DISNEY. They can tell you what all your options are. Another great choice is to speak with a travel agent. They can help you pinpoint the most cost effective time for you to travel.
