One of many exclusive perks available to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is the option to add a pre-paid dining plan to vacation packages.

IMG_6764Each guest (age 3 and older) is given dining credits based on the number of nights in their resort reservation.  These dining credits are used for Table Service meals, Quick Service meals, and Snack Items (depending on the dining plan chosen).

Since these dining credits are encoded onto a guest’s MagicBand, all they need to do when dining at a Disney World restaurant is have their MagicBand scanned and the appropriate dining credit(s) will be deducted.

And these dining plans aren’t just accepted inside the theme parks — they can be redeemed all over Walt Disney World property, including the resort hotels, water parks, and Disney Springs!

There are over 400 items in the parks and resorts that qualify as “Snacks” — including the beloved Mickey Ice Cream Bar. 🙂

All of the Disney Dining Plans also include a Refillable Resort Mug for each person (age 3 and older) to use during their stay!

Changes for 2018

As noted, there are a few changes to the Disney Dining Plans for 2018! Guests can order a non-alcoholic specialty beverage with their meal (where offered). These could include milkshakes, smoothies, premium hot chocolate, as well as soda, coffee, or tea. Guests age 21 and older have the option of ordering a specialty alcoholic beverage instead (where offered) such as beer, wine, sangria, mixed drinks and specialty cocktails.
