What Is the Disney Dining Plan?

The Disney Dining Plan is a prepaid meal package that Guests staying on Disney Resort property can purchase to get fantastic discounts, up to 30% in some instances, on the food offered on the property.

There are different plans to choose from, and they all come with various options regarding the type of meals you can get, like sitdowns or quick service, and even snacks throughout Disney Property, including the Disney Parks.

The Disney Dining Plan (DDP) comprises meals like starters, main courses, desserts, snacks, and much more. The DDP is purchased before you head on your Disney vacation and is usually bought every day while on vacation at WDW or any other Disney Parks worldwide.

Before going away, the DDP cost around $119 for adults and $47.50 for children during the regular reason, not including the busy season of June, July, and August. That was the base price for the standard package of the DDP, so from here on out, the price only increases.
