Saving Money Dining at Disney

What is Disney’s Dining Plan?

If you have ever been to the Walt Disney World Resort or even researched it, I am sure you have come across the Disney Dining Plan. The Disney Dining plan is an add on package for the Walt Disney World Resort that comes close to making your vacation an “all inclusive trip.” Basically, you’re prepaying for your food which can be really convenient for some people and it really helps from freaking out when you’re spending a lot of money on theme park food each day. Once you purchase the Dining Plan, you will receive dining credits on your Key to the World card (room key/park tickets). The amount of dining credit you receive is based off how many nights you are staying and what Dining Plan package you purchase. There are several Dining Plans, but the two favorites tend to be the regular Disney Dining Plan which includes 1 Table Service credit (1 entrée, 1 desert, 1 non-alcoholic drink), 1 Quick Service credit (1 entrée, 1 desert, 1 non-alcoholic drink), and 1 snack credit. The other popular choice is the Quick Service Dining Plan which includes 2 Quick Service credits (1 entrée, 1 desert, 1 non-alcoholic drink) and 1 snack credit. Both of these Dining Plans also come with a refillable mug which you can use at your resort.

The biggest question for people is if it’s a value and is it worth adding to my vacation. The answer to those questions depends on a couple factors. For the regular Dining Plan, it depends on whether you like to eat the most expensive things on the menu. The Dining Plan can be a value and save you money if you plan on eating expensive entrees for your table service meals, just getting a sandwich won’t save you any money. The Quick Service Dining Plan is great for people who just want quick meals during their vacation and don’t plan on sitting down once a day for a table service meal. If you do plan on having a special dinner or two, you can always use your credits another day for breakfast. I personally think that the convenience of the Dining Plan provides makes it worth purchasing. Imagine having mostly all your food paid for in advance, that way you’re not spending a lot of money each day on your meals.
