Tips to Make the Most of Your Dining Plan   

Our dining plans – the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan – are a great option for families. Each plan includes a certain number of meals and snacks based on the number of nights of your stay, and there are over 200 dining locations to choose from across all of Disney World! 

For example, if your family is eager to head to the parks early, you can grab a quick breakfast at your Disney Resort hotel. For lunch, quick bites can be found at locations around all four parks like PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a personal pizza or Regal Eagle Smokehouse at EPCOT for a beef brisket sandwich. And for those with the Disney Dining Plan, you may end your day at a table-service restaurant like the all-you-care-to-enjoy Polynesian-inspired dinner at ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (with special options kids will love, too) … and don’t forget to save room for the legendary ‘Ohana bread pudding. These are just a few of the many ways you can use your dining plans. Please note that reservations are subject to availability. And yes, you can use those snack credits on DOLE Whip or a Mickey ice cream bar.  

Bonus Tip: On and the My Disney Experience app, you can also easily view all available reservations for your selected date, and reservations are sorted by morning, afternoon and evening, so you can tell which menu will be served.   

More 2024 Deals   

There are even more offers available for those looking to book their Walt Disney World vacation. You can save up to 35% at select Disney Resort hotels when you stay 5 nights or longer most nights March 25 through Oct. 3, 2024. Visit on Jan. 3, 2024 to learn more.**

Disney Resort Benefits    

As a Disney Resort hotel guest, you can receive great benefits, including complimentary transportation and early theme park entry every day.*** And with your Disney Resort hotel reservation, you’ll be able to make dining reservations for your entire length of stay (for up to a 10-night stay) up to 60 days in advance of your arrival! This helps simplify your vacation planning, since you can make all your reservations on the same day, rather than checking availability day after day.  

At select Disney Resort hotels, you can also catch an outdoor Movie Under the Stars or take part in fun recreational activities. You may even get a surprise visit from a Disney character or two! 

While you count down the days to your visit, be sure to catch up on the latest additions to Disney+. One of my favorites is the new season of “Behind the Attraction.” It even includes an entire episode devoted to Disney food and the talented cast members who bring it to life.  

To plan your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, visit planDisney, a complimentary digital resource where panelists can provide you with helpful tips and advice.  

*Must be 18+ to subscribe to Disney+.  

**Savings based on the non-discounted price for the same room.  

***30-minute early theme park entry requires valid theme park admission, a Disney MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile pass or card, and may require a park reservation depending on the type of admission and the date of visit. Visit to learn more. 


  • Please make the Disney Dining Plan free for UK residents. We pay a lot for Disney+ and holidays to Disney World.

  • Is this for either of the dining plans or just for quick service?

  • Its a shame that promotions like this rarely, if ever, apply to the Campsite at Fort Wilderness. Even if it only applied to the Premium sites, I know I, for one, would be very interested….

  • Will something like this ever be available for DVC members using their points? It seems DVC members get left out of deals. Disney should care about the DVC members just as much as regular customers. A free dining plan might give us a chance to try it and want to buy it next time. Even if it was only a short time vs. length of stay.

  • Will something like free dining ever be available for DVC members using their DVC points? It seems DVC members miss out because they use their points. DVC member perks should be available again. Even if it was limited to 4 days vs length of stay. Disney should be getting DVC customers more interested in their services to help with profits.

  • How can we get the link? Doesn’t show the new offer for free dinning

  • Does anyone know what time this will go live for UK customers?

  • Guest service line says dining plan extends to the length of your stay, 4 nights with 4 days of park hopper is just minimum purchase.

  • Is free food plan deal available to DVC members who also are Disney plus members?

  • Does free meal plan a available to DVC members who are also disney plus members?

  • Will the campground be included in any of these offers?

  • Will this offer be available to international customers as the existing perks aren’t?

  • Will that disney plus free dining include more days if you’re staying longer?

  • That disneyplus deal for free dining would that include more days?
    We’re staying for 7 days

  • Will this be coming to Disneyland as well?

  • Great news! Will there also be Room only discounts out tomorrow? If so will there be a minimum night stay?

    Thank you
