    We've booked DDP for our stay and I was told we could order anything off the menu but I've read that people had to order off a Dining Plan menu, can you please tell me which is right? Also, read that service isn't as good if u use the dining plan, true?thx

    Hi Andrea!

    You've made an excellent choice in deciding to add the Disney Dining Plan to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package.

    Honestly, I've done the dining plan for the past 7 trips in a row we've taken, with the 8th just around the corner, and I could never do it without a Dining Plan ever! The plan makes dining so much more relaxed and enjoyable.

    On the Disney Dining Plan, you certainly have the full menu to order from at each table service location you visit. There is not a separate menu for the Disney Dining Plan. Very occasionally there are exceptions to certain items, and in these cases, your server will review them with you.

    For Counter Service Dining, all Combo Meals are included, or - choose a la carte with entree, side, beverage and dessert. Any time you're unsure of what your Dining Plan includes at a certain dining location, simply ask a Cast Member. They are very well versed in the ins and outs of the Disney Dining Plan and will be able to tell you precisely what is included with your meal at the location.

    Disney's unparalleled service is evident everywhere, even while dining and even while using the Disney Dining Plan. I've never experienced service I was unhappy with, even after countless meals at all levels of dining experiences!

    Whether you're on the standard or Deluxe Dining Plan, I highly recommend that you visit the link above and review the PDF file of your plan. This will help you to have a great understanding of your plan's inclusions so you're all ready to start dining your way around Disney when you arrive!

    Enjoy your dining plan ... you'll be so happy to chose to add it on!
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Andrea!
