Universal Orlando Resort Dining Plans

Universal Orlando Resort offers numerous dining plan options to help make planning your vacation seamless!  With so much to choose from, that can end up being a little overwhelming!  Here are the basics you need to know about Universal Dining Plans and the details of each different plan to determine which is right for you on your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation.
Overview
Universal Orlando Resort has 3 dining plan options, plus a beverage only plan option.  These are the Universal Dining Plan and the Universal Quick Service Dining Plan to which you can add the Coca-Cola freestyle® Souvenir Cup for a third option.

I specialize in ALL things Disney and Universal but also book travel for all inclusive and other cruise lines.

Dream Job? When I was 10 years old, my dream job was being a teacher. 
Why did I become a travel agent? I became a travel agent because Disney and traveling has brought so much joy to my life and I want others to experience that too.  Disney can be overwhelming and often times people avoid it because of the planning involved.  I love to help people plan and enjoy their vacation time instead of being worried and stressed.

My favorite vacation destination is a Disney Cruise.  My favorite island is Castaway Cay!
