    I am planning a trip to WDW over Christmas. Is there any restrictions to using Disney dining plan credits, at table service and signature restaurants on Christmas day? Are there any set menus on Christmas day that do not allow dining credits to be used?

    Welcome to planDisney, Stacey! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. My family and I are big fans of the Disney Dining Plan, and we're so excited that it will be returning this coming January. I'm happy to chat with you about exactly how to use it when you visit next Christmas, so let's jump right in!

    There are some Table Service restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort that offer a special menu on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, and typically they are included with the Disney Dining Plan. Every entree on the menu is eligible for the Disney Dining Plan and, if it's a special upgrade like Wagyu beef or lobster, the additional price to upgrade will be listed clearly for you to see. We don't know exactly what is to be expected of Christmas menus in 2024, but the special set menus are likely to be included in the Disney Dining Plan. Of course, all menus and pricing are subject to change so be sure to check with the Cast Member serving you when you sit down for the most up-to-date information.

    I hope this answers your question, Stacey, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
