    Hi, I just read in the unofficial guide that they charge extra @ restaurants even for those on the dining plan on holidays. I will be there on easter, do they charge @ all restaurants even counter-service & how much? Will they have an easter celebratio

    Hi, Elizabeth!

    "Holiday Pricing" takes effect during very busy times like Christmas or Easter.  If you are on the dining plan, the cost of your dining plan might be higher, but you will not have to pay out of pocket at your meal any increase.  You will already be paying the Holiday Pricing in your plan when you purchase it. Because of the higher price of your meal, plan on a few extra dollars for your gratuities, as these are based on current menu prices.

    I have never noticed Quick Service locations using Holiday Pricing, I believe that is only used at Table Service locations. 

    Just an FYI:  The Holiday Pricing (if paying out of pocket) is usually about $2 - $5 per meal extra at buffets and character dining.  There may also be Holiday Pricing at restaurants with A la Carte menus.  If you are paying out of pocket for meals and are concerned about cost, make sure to ask the price when booking your reservation or by calling (407)WDW-DINE.  You can also get a good idea on prices if you check the menus at

    I hope this helps!  Make sure to book all your dining reservations ahead of time as locations are sure to booked to capacity.  Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
