    Why is Walt Disney travel no longer offering dining packages? I see character meals but no dining package. We found it beneficial to have all meals paid for before arrival. Thank you

    Hello Mandi,

    Thank you for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a Dapper Day!

    Sometimes changes have to be made for the ebb-and-flow of the parks. The meal plans have been discontinued for 2014, however, you can still purchase Character Meal Vouchers when booking a vacation package. 
    I hope you will find these to be beneficial to your family. There are two types of vouchers available; the Premium is for the larger restaurants with more Disney Characters available, longer dining periods, and more meal choices. Premium Character Dining will include Goofy's Kitchen and Ariel's Disney Princess Celebration. The Character Resort Dining is for Breakfast in the Park with Minnie & Friends, Surf’s Up! Breakfast with Mickey & Friends, and Chip n Dale Critter Breakfast Buffet.

    You do have the option to use your Premium or Character Resort Dining Vouchers at other dining locations however you will be paying at the counter when you show up at the reservation. Keep in mind that the vouchers have a set value. Change will not be given back or you may have to pay the difference if you spend more, so choose your menu items accordingly. 

    You may use these vouchers at the following locations:
    Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa - Storyteller’s Café and Napa Rose
    Disneyland Hotel - Goofy's Kitchen and Steakhouse 55
    Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel - PCH Grill
    Disney California Adventure Park - Wine Country Trattoria and Carthay Circle Restaurant
    Disneyland Park - Blue Bayou, Carnation Café, Cafe Orleans, and Big Thunder Ranch BBQ

    I hope this helps and that you have a pixie-dusted visit. If you have any more questions, please visit us here and let us know how we can help you plan your magical vacation.
