The Disney Dining Plan allows guests to pre-pay for their food for an upcoming Disney trip. There are 3 options to choose from: Quick Service Plan, Disney Dining Plan and Deluxe Dining Plan. Below are 5 reasons why we just love the Disney Dining Plan. Do you agree?
1. You Will Not Go Hungry
The Dining Plan gives guests plenty of food. Even with the Quick Service Plan, the lowest priced option, guests will not go hungry while on the Disney Dining Plan. This is since many meals come with desserts as well (table service lunch or dinner). Disney portions are also quite generous. Plus, snacks (2) are included per person. Guests can choose how to use their credits. For example, if a guest is full one day from their meals then save the snack credits for another day or vice versa. The flexibility to use the credits as you wish means eating what you want when you want, and never going hungry!
2. Carry Less Cash
Pre-paying for all your meals and snacks means your hotel and food bills (less tips) are covered while at Disney. Thus, guests will only need to budget for souvenirs and incidentals, (plus tips if you plan on doing sit-down meals or buffets). Choosing the dining plan means having to carry less cash at the parks. This is convenient for easily budgeting for your trip. Food is a major expense for most Disney World visitors and having it already paid for means less cash is needed for the parks.
3. Rapid Fill Mug
Each level on the Disney Dining Plan provides each guest in your party with a Rapid Fill Mug. These are the plastic cups with lids that have unlimited refills at your resorts refill station. These can be filled at any Disney World Resort during the dates of your stay. Resort hopping? Bring the mug! Choose from Soda, Tea, Coffee and more.
4. Try New Restaurants
Having credits to use instead of paying cash means trying more expensive restaurants are now within reach. Order the most expensive meal if you choose because its already paid for (and to break even on the Dining Plan). Since your meal is already paid for, looking at prices is not needed. Don’t forget to decide on a delicious dessert to taste as well (for table service lunch or dinner dessert is included) . Consider a Character Meal for an amazing Disney experience, and a great way to use a Disney table credit.
5. Two Snacks Included Per Day
Now, each of the 3 Dining Plan options (Quick Service, Disney Dining Plan & Deluxe Plan) include 2 snack options per guest per day. Disney World has an enormous amount of snack options to choice from. Snacks are a perfect afternoon pick me up and even better when they are pre-paid for. Plus, snack credits can be used on select drinks as well (consider, Starbucks drinks). Read through the 226 Best Snack Credits at Disney World to consider using your credits on.
