    For the 2024 returning Disney dining plan. For Table service dinners, are desserts included? If so is it to share or does everyone get their own dessert?

    Hello, Carly, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney where the only thing we love more than talking about dining around the Walt Disney World Resort is... well... eating!

    Carly, I was so excited when the announcement was made regarding the return of the dining plans. I know that many families love the all-inclusive feel of this add-on and it's a great way to budget for food during your visit. 

    Now, once you've selected the Disney Dining Plan, it's important to know what's included, so let's talk about your question. When redeeming a Table Service meal at brunch, lunch, or dinner, that credit will include 1 Entrée, 1 Dessert, and 1 Nonalcoholic Beverage (or Alcoholic Beverage, for Guests 21 and older). And... this is for each guest, so no need to share that final sweet treat! For example, if you're having dinner at Sci-Fi Dine-In at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you might order the Pan-Seared Chicken Pasta with an Orange Blossom Pilsner and finish with The Red Planet. This would deduct 1 Table Service credit from your allotment.

    Carly, please keep in mind that there are a few signature restaurants and character experience meals that require 2 Table Service credits per guest. On my family's last trip, we faced the Evil Queen herself at Story Book Dining at Artist Point (located at Disney's Wilderness Lodge). At this restaurant, you'll find shared appetizers for the table, individual entrées (selected by each guest), and shared desserts. Online, you can find menus for almost all of the restaurants around the Walt Disney World Resort and note their participation status in the Disney Dining Plan.

    I hope this helps as you're planning ahead for your next visit. You can view menus online prior to your visit and I encourage you to make dining reservations 60 days in advance of your stay. If you have any other questions, please come on back to planDisney. 

    Wishing you a delicious visit in every sense of the word,
