    Is spirit of aloha dinner included in dining plan?are certain restaurants not in plan?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lori!

    My family has enjoyed years of trips to Walt Disney World while utilizing a Disney Dining Plan; I think you will, too!

    While participation is subject to change, most Walt Disney World restaurants accept some Dining Plans. Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, for example, uses 2 entitlements on both the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. Head to the link above, then glance to the right of the page. Just under "Polynesian Cuisine", you'll see a checkmark and "Some Dining Plans Accepted".  Click on that and the specifics for this dining experience will appear in a pop-up window.

    To check on Dining Plan participation of other restaurants, enter a restaurant's name into the searchbar on Walt Disney World's website, and select the restaurant's page in the list of results. There, if that is a participating location, you'll see "Some Dining Plans Accepted" in the same spot as mentioned above; entitlement information is available by clicking on that phrase, too.

    You can also check on a location's participation by heading to the PDF of your specific Disney Dining Plan; these are listed on Walt Disney World's website, under the "Things to Do" tab. (Hover your cursor on that tab, and you'll see "Dining Plans" listed under "Dining"). Because Dining Plans may change from year to year, be sure to select the Dining Plan you'll be using while touring the most magical place on Earth. Participating restaurants are listed by park, resort and Disney Springs.

    Send more questions as you think of them, Lori; we love to help!
