The Disney Dining Plan at Walt Disney World
The Disney Dining Plan is an easy way to save money, dine on any budget, and suited for your dining style or dietary needs. The plans can be added on to any package (room and tickets per person), making your vacation relaxed and more enjoyable knowing it’s already taken care of. Based on which Disney Dining Plan you choose determines the number snacks, quick service meals and table service meals that are included.
How it Works:
- To redeem your credits, present your MagicBand at time of ordering snacks, quick-service meals and table-service meal to the Cast Member.
- At quick-service locations, to pay you will tap your band to a device. The Cast Member will present you with a receipt that lists the number of credits remaining (it will be located at the bottom of your receipt.
- For table-service locations, you’ll be asked if you are on a Dining Plan. You will the tap your MagicBand on their portable device and he/she will explain what is include and what is not.
- You must be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort that is owned and operated by the Disney Company.
- For each person in your party (When booking and adding the Disney Dining Plan, everyone in the room must be on the same plan. Excludes children under 3. They can share from the adult plates or eat at a buffet free of charge.) you receive credits per night.
- Credits may be used in any order and any amount. For example, you may use two table-service credits one day and two quick-service credits the next.
- All dining components are connected to your MagicBand, so you must present when ordering.
- Guests age 3 to 9 must order off the children’s menu.
- Guests under the age of 3 do not receive the Disney Dining Plan.
- Gratuity is not included on table service meals. For more information on gratuity and United States recommendations, visit our Tipping page.
Updates to the Disney Dining Plan:
- At table-service restaurants, you can substitute your dessert for a fruit plate, side salad or cup of soup. No substituting appetizers for desserts.
- You may substitute any dessert or non-alcoholic beverage for a snack credit.
- You may substitute a quick-service meal for up to three Disney Dining Plan eligible snacks.
- Single snack credits can be redeemed for cereal, French toast sticks, breakfast potatoes, oatmeal, quinoa, grits, eggs, bacon, or sausage.

Reservations will then be considered a package, not a room only, and will then require a $200 deposit and are subject to all terms of Disney packages. Disney Vacation Club members may add one of the dining plans except for Platinum and Premium packages.
