    We are visiting WDW for the first time and are adding the deluxe dining plan. What are the restrictions to use these? I can't find info on the website. Thank you.

    Hi Jennifer,

    So glad to know you will soon be visiting Walt Disney World Resort for the first time. So much to see, to enjoy, to experience. In no time, you will discover that The Magic is Endless.

    My family loves the Disney Dining Plans. They are such a convenience and let us leave behind any worries about meal budgets. Instead we enjoy delicious food and create even more memories. The 2017 Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes three meals and two Snacks per person, per night of stay. You also receive a refillable drink mug that you can use for refills, at self-service beverage islands at any Disney Resort hotel.

    You can use your meal entitlements at any time, from the moment you Check-In until midnight of your Check-Out day. For Snacks, be on the lookout for the special Disney Dining Plan Snack logo at restaurants and food stands. For meals, you have the flexibility to choose from Quick-Service and Table-Service locations throughout the whole Resort, including Theme Parks, Resort Hotels and Disney Springs. Signature dining locations typically require two meal entitlements per person. Reservations are strongly recommended for Table-Service venues, but they will accommodate walk-ins if there is availability. Be Our Guest Restaurant offers Quick-Service during breakfast and lunch but also accepts reservations.

    One last tip: you can make reservations up to 180 days in advance. Many Guests make changes at the last minute, so it is possible to get a last minute reservation. Use the My Disney Experience mobile app to make this quick and easy. See you real soon!
