    Hello. I am trying to decide if getting an Annual Pass and Tables in Wonderland is a better choice for our family than getting the Disney Dining Plan. Are there any quick service restaurants or food carts in the parks where the AP or TiW give a discount?

    Hi Karen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for asking such a good question.  With many discounts and special offers available for dining across the whole Walt Disney World Resort, we need to do some calculations to ensure we are making the best savings for our travelling party.  The Disney Dining Plan will offer the broadest selection of locations at which to make your savings, providing each person, per night, one Quick-Service meal, one Table-Service meal, two Snacks and a refillable drink mug (which can be refilled at the beverage station at all the Disney Resort hotels).  Every person on the same reservation must have the same Dining Plan, and this can be redeemed at all theme parks, water parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.  Annual Passholder Discounts offer 10% savings on Table-Service dining in the theme parks, valid for the passholder and up to three guests.  Tables in Wonderland membership is available to Florida residents, Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members, and will offer 20% discount for the member, and up to 9 guests, at mostly Table-Service restaurants in the theme parks - the exception being at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park Quick-Service restaurants: Flame Tree Barbecue and Restaurantosaurus.  There are some Quick-Service restaurants at Disney Resort hotels where Tables In Wonderland members can benefit from the discount - see the full list of restaurants here.

    The easiest way to see which restaurants accept the Disney Dining Plan is by filtering the selection on this restaurant list.  Across the top you can select which location - theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, Disney Springs etc. - and which Dining Plan you wish to use.  Once you have clicked on your chosen restaurant you can view the menu, and see how many dining plan credits you will need.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
