Anyone who reads this blog knows how much we love visiting Walt Disney World. We have just come back from our third visit, and enjoyed every second of it. With each visit we have always taken advantage of the Disney Dining Plans, for us they work well, and means we don’t have to worry about our food budget whilst on holiday.
Walt Disney World offer three different dining plans, the quick service which offers you two quick service meals, two snacks and a refillable drink per day. You can upgrade slightly to the Regular Dining plan which offers one table service meal, one quick service meal, two snacks and a refillable drink per day, or the Deluxe Dining plan which offers three meals of any combination per day, two snacks and a refillable mug per day.
For our first two trips we had the quick service dining plan, and paid for any character meals we wanted to attend such as dinner at Be Our Guest, or lunch at Tusker House. This year we upgraded our dining plan to the Regular Dining plan which included the table service meal per day. This saved us quite a bit of money as we didn’t have to worry about the additional cash for meals, we just had to pay the gratuities after the meals.
The infographic above is a great way to understand how the different dining plans works and what is included in the current dining plans. We have found using the Dining plan so easy as everything is linked to your Magic Band. We always find plenty of choice on offer, with something to suit everyone in the family which is great. With over 100 locations that accept the Disney Dining plans, it’s not difficult to find something for everyone.
Some of my personal favourites from our recent trip this year was lunch at Crystal Palace. Meeting Winnie the Pooh and friends was so much fun, and the food choice was good and tasty. We also really enjoyed the Hoop De Doo Revue show which took two of our table service credits as it was a dinner and a show, but it was by far one of the highlights of our holiday and well worth using the two credits on.
If you’re considering a holiday to Walt Disney World, I would encourage you to decide if the Disney Dining plans are for you. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
