    We will be staying at AOA from 12/15-12/18. I got the Deluxe Dining Plan but am a little confused. Assuming we don't get alcoholic drinks, will we still need to pay in addition to using our dining plan? If so, about how much?

    Hey Christina-

    I hope you love Disney•Pixar because Disney’s Art of Animation was fantastic for my family last year. We loved swimming in the Big Blue Pool and hanging out with Simba in the Lion King Suites Area. You must check out the stars from Cars. So fun!

    The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes three (3) Meals and two (2) Snacks per person, per night of your package stay for everyone in the party ages three and over. Depending on the meal you may be entitled appetizer, entreé, dessert, non-alcoholic beverage or one (1) buffet. At your meal everything is included with the exception of extra items ordered off the menu that you choose not to use a meal entitlement for and, most importantly, the tip. Tips are requested at table service dining experiences only. Tip your server as you feel most comfortable. Let’s say there are four members in your party for dinner. You select your desired items and then decided that you want an extra item. You have the option to use a fifth meal entitlement or to pay out-of-pocket. The only additional expenses will be to pay for tip and any extra no meal plan items ordered.

    I hope this helps unscramble the mystery. Please stop by with more questions to help you plan a wonderful vacation, Christina. We love to help. 

    Enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
