Disney Deluxe Dining Plan for 2017
Available only with vacation packages that include accommodations at a Disney-owned-and-operated hotel or with a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) reservation (including those booked using rented DVC points), the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan for 2017 is a convenient way to experience many of the unique Disney dining locations found across the Walt Disney World Resort.
The additional cost on top of a regular Disney Magic Your Way package is $106.68 (tax included) per night per adult or junior (ages 10+), $38.74 (tax included) per night for children (ages 3-9). The additional cost per person per night when added to a DVC booking is $103.57 (10+) / $37.62 (3-9).
With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan you can enjoy the following (per person, per package night) from participating Walt Disney World Resort restaurants:
- Three table service or quick service meals
- table service meal includes: entrée and non-alcoholic beverage OR full buffet at breakfast; appetizer, entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage OR full buffet at lunch & dinner, and tax (gratuity not included)
- quick service meal includes: entrée or complete combo meal and non-alcoholic beverage at breakfast, lunch or dinner, and tax
- Two snacks from a wide variety of options
- One Resort refillable drink mug per person, per package (eligible for refills at quick service locations only in your Disney Resort hotel)
For example, a guest with a length of stay of 3-nights/4-days who books a Disney Magic Your Way Package with the Deluxe Dining Plan would receive nine meals and six snacks per person, for their stay. These meals and snacks can be used at any time during your stay, in any order.
To get maximum value from this plan, you should use your meals at table service locations as much as possible!
A table service meal credit may be used for one Character Dining Experience, gratuity not included (except Cinderella’s Royal Table, which requires 2 table service credits but includes gratuity).
Two table service meal credits may be exchanged for one of the following:
- one Signature Dining Experience (special high-end restaurants) – includes entrée, dessert, non-alcoholic beverage and tax (gratuity not included)
- one Disney Dinner Show – Category 2 or 3 seating at either show; or Category 1 seating at the last show of the evening for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue (gratuity INCLUDED)
- one Private Dining (room service) meal at Deluxe resorts – includes appetizer (at lunch & dinner), entrée, dessert (at lunch & dinner), plus non-alcoholic beverage and tax (gratuity INCLUDED)
- one Pizza Delivery at select Value and Moderate resorts – 1 pizza, 2 desserts, 2 non-alcoholic beverages (gratuity INCLUDED)
Advance Dining Reservations are strongly suggested for table service restaurants, Character Dining Experiences and Signature Dining Experiences. Advance Dining Reservations are required for Disney Dinner Shows. Merchandise or photo imaging products that may be offered at dining experiences are not included.
Everyone in the room must be booked on the same package and ticket options. The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan is unavailable for guests under the age of 3, but they may share from an adult plate at no charge or a meal may be purchased from the menu. The price of the meal will be added to your bill. Guests ages 3-9 must order from a children’s menu where available.
