    Thinking about getting a dining plan- just want to make sure- if a restaurant is listed that they accept the dining plan, that includes all of the entrees, not just specific ones? It's just the snacks that I need to look for the special symbol right?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Danika!

    I am so glad that you stumbled upon Disney Dining Plans as you consider details for your trip to Walt Disney World. It's a great deal!

    When you dine at any location, you are not directed to a particular collection of items on the menu. With just a few exceptions (alcoholic beverages and beverages in souvenir cups, for example), you are entitled to any item on that menu.

    Thus, if you are heading to dinner at a spectacular location such as Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you may order the Charred Strip Steak or the Penne alla Vodka, the Shrimp Campanelle (my favorite!) or the Vegetable Lasagna. Any of the entrees on the menu are available for you to enjoy, so order whichever you prefer!

    One of the perks of a Disney Dining Plan is not having to worry about spending the extra $15 for a steak instead of a pasta dish. If that is what catches your eye on the menu, order it! With your purchase of the plan, dine as you like, enjoying an entree, a non-alcoholic beverage and a dessert at each participating Table-Service location.

    We love it!
