Is the Disney Dining Plan Right for You?

They're all the talk these days- Disney dining plans are back!

Disney dining plans disappeared in 2020, but many old school Disney fans will remember them for their convenience and great value.

And the infamous “Free Dining” discount was THE discount everyone waited for each year.

Well, like a lot of things, 2024's dining plans are a little different than they used to be. And depending on your personal tastes and travel style, a dining plan could be a great value for your vacation- or possibly a bust.

Let's cover the basics first.

The Disney Dining Plan includes table service meals, quick service meals, snacks and a refillable drink mug to use at your resort.

This is ideal if you like to do a sit-down meal each day of your vacation, and if you love character dining.

The Quick Service Dining Plan includes quick service meals, snacks and a refillable drink mug to use at your resort.

This is ideal if you like flexibility, and don't want to be tied down to a bunch of dining reservations.

Which one are you?

Since Disney dining plans have returned, I have been researching, reading, and yes, doing lots of math to determine whether dining plans are a good value, and if so, for whom?

I will always be straightforward with you, and help you find what's best for YOU. And the truth is the dining plans are not a good value for every vacation.

So, I made this helpful quiz to sort through the information. There are a lot of factors that determine whether a dining plan makes sense for your vacation, such as how you like to eat, and whether you enjoy having to track your credits, or if you love to try to come out on top and "win".

And as always, I am here to help you with every planning step. If you've got questions about the dining plans, I am here to take away all the hassle and guesswork. Schedule a Zoom call or phone appointment with my any time, and let's begin!
