Disney Dining Credit And How It Works


At Walt Disney World, you can now satisfy your adrenaline and your appetite with two new promotions featuring Disney dining options. Offered exclusively to Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests arriving from 2024 onwards, culinary magic awaits. To determine which dining offer will hit the sweet spot, this guide will delve into the differences between Disney's Early Booking Offer and Disney Dining Plans.


Return of Disney Dining Plans  

 

Magic is back on the menu! The Happiest Place on Earth just got merrier with the reintroduction of Disney Dining Plans.  

Not to be confused with Disney's Early Booking Offer, the Disney Dining Plans are a separate promotion, providing you with a select number of meals per night that can be used to boost the $2,100 Dining & Merchandise credit included within the Welcome Back to Being You package. 

Exclusive to Walt Disney World Resort holidays booked from 31st May 2023, and arriving on or after the 9th January, you can choose from two tiers of Disney Dining Plans: 
 

Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan 

 

 £47.99 per adult/£19.99 per child, per night

 

Created for Disney dreamers who wish to dine on the go, the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan provides access to over 100 counter-service locations. From this wide selection of eateries, you can enjoy 2 quick-service meals, 1 non-alcoholic/alcoholic drink (per meal) and 1 selected snack or drink, per guest (aged 3 and over), per night of your stay.  
 

Disney Dining Plan 

 

£77.99 per adult/£24.99 per child, per night

 

The Disney Dining Plan works best for foodies interested in Character Dining and a signature sit-down meal at over 200 restaurants. You'll receive 1 table-service meal, 1 quick-service meal, 1 non-alcoholic/alcoholic drink, and 1 snack or drink, per guest (aged 3 and over), per night of your stay. 

Whichever plan you choose, everyone in your party will also get a refillable mug that they can use throughout the resort.

Top Dining tips for before you go


Book your reservation in advance


Due to the popularity of Welcome Back to Being You Dining and Merchandise experiences, it is highly recommended to book up to 60 days in advance. At My Disney Experience, you can find your favourite diners and their menus to help decide your booking.


Get to know Disney’s Park Pass System


Disney's Park Pass System is its health and safety measure that manages the number of people visiting Walt Disney World Resort Parks. So, while you reserve restaurants and experiences on your My Disney Experience account, you should also select the days you plan to visit Disney’s theme parks.

If you want to eat at multiple parks, you can do so after 2 pm if you have a Park Hopper ticket. For any other information, contact our expert Travel Consultants for guidance.
