    does the price of the dining plan include tax?


    It's wonderful to see you with us here, Judi. Thank you for joining us with your Disney Dining Plan question.

    We love how easy it is to handle our dining budget at home well before we even pack our bags for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. There is so much freedom in knowing that we can visit whichever restaurants we like and order the item that sounds best without needed to check the price. For our frugal family, it's a freedom we don't often feel anywhere else. 

    Yes, the Disney Dining Plan prices that you see on the Disney Vacation Club Member Website in the details for your Upcoming Vacations do include tax. Please keep in mind that this does not include gratuity so you will still want to add an average of 15-25% for your Table Service experiences.

    Did you know that Disney Vacation Club Members are also eligible to purchase a Tables in Wonderland Membership? This Disney dining discount program offers a 20% savings on the total bill, including appetizers and adult beverages, at most Walt Disney World Resort table service restaurants. We have used this Membership benefit when traveling with friends and family and it has really helped us stretch our precious vacation dollars. Check it out and see if it works for you!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
