In early May, Disney announced that its Dining Plans would be returning. This news was met with much fanfare as it has been absent from every Disney World theme park since 2020.

The plans won’t officially return until January 2024, but new details regarding the pricing have recently been released by Disney. Walt Disney World Resort will be offering Guests staying on property two different Disney dining plans: Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Standard Dining Plan.

Disney Quick Service Dining Plan

The quick service plan is best suited for individuals with no intention of visiting a sit-down restaurant during their time at Disney. For every night of your stay each Guest will enjoy two quick service meals (meal is defined as one entrée and one alcoholic or nonalcoholic drink) and one snack or nonalcoholic beverage. It also comes with a refillable mug that can be used at your resort.

Before committing to any Disney Dining Plan, its always best to consider your time in the park and number of days on property. The Dining Plans can often be a great value, but may require a bit more planning in advance. It may not always be the best option or the most affordable. So do your own research and plan accordingly!

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
