Walt Disney Travel Company announced today a brand new Disney Dining Plan option for travelers who might like a bit more flexibility during their trip.
Disney Resort hotel guests can now add “Disney Dining Plan Plus” to their Walt Disney World vacation package. The Disney Dining Plan Plus entitles guests get two meals per night of their package stay to redeem at either table service restaurants, quick service locations, character dining experiences, or a combination – giving them more flexibility.
In addition, the Disney Dining Plan Plus option includes two snacks per night, one Disney Resort hotel refillable drink mug (which can be used at any Disney Resort hotel quick-service location), and at each meal, unlimited refills of fountain sodas, single-service teas and brewed coffee, or one non-alcoholic specialty beverage, and for guests 21 and older with valid ID, one beer, wine or cocktail. Meals can be redeemed in any order and in any combination. Unused meals and snacks rollover day to day.
Now, how does this price out?
The upgrade cost from The typical Disney Dining Plan is very reasonable, in my opinion. The cost per adult is $95 per night and $35 for children 3-9 years. To compare, the typical DIsney Dining Plans runs $78 for adults and $31 for children 3-9 years old per night that includes 1 counter service, 1 table service, 2 snack credits, and a refillable mug per person. With Deluxe Dining pricing at $119 for adults and $48 for children 3-9 years old entitling guests 3 meals credits to use at their discretion at both counter sreuvce and table service restaurants plus 2 snack credits for each guest per person each night and a refillable mug.
This is a fantastic option, for families like mine, who like to stay in concierge level rooms resorts where light breakfast and snacks are provided throughout the day, and then indulge in signature table serivce dinners. This also works well for travelers who can use snack credits for breakfast or lunch but will sit down to enjoy two meals daily. I don’t think you will get your credit’s money’s worth if you use it on counter service meals except breakfast or lunch inside Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest.
