When sitting down for dinner, my concern usually turns to how much the meal will cost. When purchasing the Disney Dining Plan, I can go into a restaurant without looking at the cost and just order according to what we love. If my husband wants the large steak meal for $30.00, I don’t need to think, “We only have $40.00 for dinner, what can I order to make this work.” Other than paying for gratuities and alcohol, I would never need to reach into my wallet for food.
Disney has 3 Dining Plans – Disney’s Quick-Service Dining Plan, Disney’s Dining Plan and Disney’s Deluxe Dining Plan. It really depends on your eating habits and how you conquer the parks as to which plan is perfect for your family!
Does your family wake up at dawn to be at rope drop? Do your "rests" involve sitting during an attraction and your days end at park close? If this is your style, I would recommend Disney's Quick-Service Dining Plan. Each person age 3 and older will receive 2 Quick-Service Meals and 1 Snack per night of your stay.
If your family enjoys the hustle and bustle of the parks, but also looks forward to sit-down meals, your best bet would be the Disney Dining Plan. Some call this the "Regular" Dining Plan. This is the most popular dining plan as it offers 1 Table-Service Meal, 1 Quick-Service Meal and 1 Snack per person, per night of your stay.
Want to enjoy a slow leisurely pace during your vacation, and enjoy some of the most fabulous cuisine that Disney has to offer? Do you like to eat your way through "The World"? Then Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan is for you! This plan includes 3 meals either Quick-Service or Table-Service and 2 Snacks per person, per night of your stay. Talk about a LOT of food!
With each of these dining plans, each person age 3 and older on your reservation will receive 1 refillable resort mug that is valid for the length of your stay. This mug can be picked up at your resort food court. You may refill your mug for FREE as many times as you wish throughout your stay only at your resort food court. It's also a great souvenir! My family drinks out of ours daily at home!

My family usually purchases the Disney Dining Plan, and recently enjoyed the Quick Service Dining Plan for FREE. That's right! Disney occasionally offers the Dining Plan as a promotion, for free! What better way to see if you would enjoy this benefit then getting it at no cost! Talk with your favorite Kingdom Konsultant Agent between now and September 29, 2012, and see if you would be eligible to receive this promotion!
