    Hello! In regard to the Disney Dining Plan; is there any kind of list that has the specific menu items that are covered by the dining plan, not just the restaurants that accept it?

    Hi Cassie,

    Welcome back to planDisney! 

    I am excited to see that you have included a Disney Dining Plan with your vacation package. While I do not know of a complete official list of menu items across all Walt Disney World® Resort restaurants that are covered by a dining plan, I will say that my family has been able to navigate with a dining plan without such a list. We always make a list of the restaurants we plan to visit, then we each take a look at the menus and when we arrive, we just confirm options with the cast member who serves us. Also, one of our fellow panelists, Betsy, advises to pay attention to the serving size - items that say they are for "two" may not be included in the dining plan options.

    Our girls both have food allergies and one of them has four significant food allergies. We have always been able to use a dining plan and work with cast members on-site to support her. If you are trying to navigate food allergies and a dining plan, feel free to review the Special Dietary Requests resources and contact a member of the Special Diets Team if you have specific questions.

    As you prepare to use that dining plan, I also suggest that you calculate the total number of meals you will have. Remember that meals are based on nights of stay. I always do this calculation to make sure we have a meal on the day we arrive and the day we depart. I also then check each restaurant to see how many meals are required for each location. One of our favorite dining locations is reopening soon -1900 Park Fare! Currently, this dining location would require one meal from your Disney Dining Plan for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. From the restaurant's home page, just click on View Dining Plans to see dining plan requirements. Remember that you can also review the list of restaurants that accept the Disney Dining Plan.

    Cassie, there are so many dining locations, I trust you will find some that meet your needs! 

    Magic and memories,
