News: Disney World is Introducing a New Dining Plan!

Walt Disney World is offering guests who elect to purchase a Disney Dining Plan a little more flexibility. A brand new option is coming soon!

The Disney Dining Plan Plus is a new option Walt Disney World guests can use when they book a vacation package on or after February 27, 2020. It is an expansion of the current plan offerings, which include the Quick Service Plan, the Disney Dining Plan, and the Deluxe Dining Plan.

The Disney Dining Plan Plus is an expansion of the Disney Dining Plan. For those who are new to Disney Dining Plans, the original Disney Dining Plan offers guests one quick service meal, one table service meal, and two snacks per night of your stay. Guests also receive a refillable mug that lasts the duration of the stay.

The Disney Dining Plan Plus will be an option that offers guests 2 meals and 2 snacks a day along with the refillable mug. But, those two meals can be redeemed at either a quick service OR a table service location. Guests can also redeem credits using the plan at participating buffets and all you care to enjoy locations.

The plan will still provide guests an entree, beverage or non-alcoholic specialty drink at participating locations. Guest over 21 can elect to order an alcoholic beverage instead of a soft drink.

Credits will be pooled as usual, so guests can choose to use them whenever they like during their stay. Entitlements become available on the day of check-in and are redeemable through check-out day.

FREE dining is now available for SUMMER 2019

The pricing of the new dining plan remains a mystery. However, the Kenny The Pirate Writing team will break the news as soon as it is available.

Once the pricing becomes available, you’ll be able to determine whether the Dining Plan is a wise choice for your travel party. You can see how to determine this by reading our article HERE.

  1. I have done the dining plan in the past many years ago. I loved it. Since then, I question if it’s really worth it. It’s very pricey, and I wouldn’t mind as much if it were flexible enough to exchange say 2 quick service meals for one sit down., or maybe so many snacks for one quick meal. At the end of the vacation there are many snacks and quick meals left. I feel that it’s wasteful. There has to be too much time planning meals and that’s stressful especially now you have to book fast passes, dinner reservations, etc. just my opinion.

  2. If I understand correctly with the regular Disney dining plan the table service credits are separated from adults and children where the quick service credits are all the same. With this plan all credits are the same table service and quick service?

  3. we have a trip booked for march 1st– since this plan begins on feb 27th, can i wait until that date and then have the option to buy this new plan?

  4. So if I booked my vacation (renting DVC points) already (arriving 5/24/20) but did not add a meal plan, is this plan an option for my family?

  5. I would love a meal plan option that was more customizable. I know that my family would not use all of the meals/snacks everyday on even the smallest meal plan and we would end up with way too many credits left at the end of our trip to reasonably use. That is just how we eat at the parks, but it would be nice to be able to budget out some flat rate meals and snacks in advance, I just don’t need that many per day.
