Dining Plan Tips at Disney You Should Know!

Have you heard the news? The fan-favorite dining plans are back at Walt Disney World! If you’re planning your next Walt Disney World vacation and wondering which dining plan is best for your family’s taste, style, and budget, planDisney panelists Lisa E. and Michelle D. are here to help. Here are three things you can look forward to on this episode of the planDisney Podcast:

What is a Dining Plan?

A dining plan is the ultimate vacation planning tool that allows guests with Disney Resort Hotel Packages to prepay for meals and snacks. You can choose between the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan which include a set number of meals and snacks for everyone on your reservation ages 3 and up. The panelists break down everything you need to know about each dining plan to help you decide which is best for your travel party.

Why Add a Dining Plan?

Two words: convenience and flexibility. You can redeem meals and snacks at any time during your stay at over 200 dining locations throughout the Disney Resort hotels, theme parks, and select locations at Disney Springs. And the best part is that meals and snacks don’t expire until midnight on check-out day! Whether you like to slow down and enjoy dedicated family time over a sit-down meal like Lisa, or you’re a spontaneous park hopper grabbing dinner on the go like Michelle, there’s a dining plan for every vacation style! 

How to Use Your Dining Plan

The panelists explain how simple and easy it is to use your dining plan and share expert advice on maximizing your dining options using the My Disney Experience app. Looking for the inside scoop on the best use of your meals and snacks? Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with host Amiyrah Martin and Vinnie Tai, a cast member on the team that launched the return of the dining plan!
