    I was told over 90% of restaurants were included in meal plan. What restaurants are not? I know some restaurants you have to use 2 dinner tickets. But what are names of restaurants that are not included in plan? Thanks!

    Hi, Miloann!   You will find that most restaurants on Disney Property are included in the Disney Dining Plan.   The most popular restaurants that are NOT on the Dining Plan are Rainforest Cafe and T-REX Cafe.  

    There are also some restaurants that are considered "Signature Restaurants" and require 2 Table Service Credits; California Grill, Citricos, and Yachtsman Steakhouse to name a few.   Dinner Shows, such as Mickey's Backyard BBQ or Spirit of Aloha Show also require 2 Table Service Credits.

    To see if a restaurant you plan on dining at is included in the Dining Plan or to see if it is a Signature Restaurant, click HERE.   This 6 page document is very helpful when using the Disney Dining Plan for the first time.

    Once you have an idea of where you want to dine, make sure to make your Advance Dining Reservations by calling (407)WDW-DINE.   Some locations fill up quickly, so try to be flexible with days and times when booking.

    Have fun making your dining plans for your upcoming Disney vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
