There's a new Disney Dining Plan Tier! Does this help you make the decision to get the Dining Plan?

I love the Disney Dining Plan, mainly for the sake of convenience and less worry about prices when it comes time to order, But one of the drawbacks of the Dining Plans in the past was the lack of flexibility. Some like to plan everything out, while others like to decide when they are there. With this new plan, it allows a little more flexibility. at a cost of course. You can get the best of both worlds… pay ahead but make decisions on the fly.

Previously there were 3 Disney Dining Tiers

– Disney Quick Service Dining Plan:

  • 2 Quick Service Meals
  • 2 Snacks

– Disney Dining Plan

  • 1 Quick Service meal
  • 1 Table Service meal
  • 2 Snacks
Disney Deluxe Dining Plan
  • 3 meals – any combo of Quick Service or Table Service
  • 2 Snacks
All dining plans include a refillable drink mug per person to use at any self-service beverage islands at Disney Resort hotels.
With the addition with the Dining Plan Plus, there is a more flexible plan with regards to deciding how to use your credits. The new plan includes the following:
  •  2 meals – any combo of Quick Service meals or Table service meals
  • 2 snacks
  • Drink mug
  • Plus, redeem meals for Special Dining Experiences including Character dining. (I don’t think anything. Changed here. They just added the wording but you could use credits for character dining and 2 credit special dining if you chose to before)
Keep in mind that we still recommend that you plan your table service dining in advance and make reservations at those restaurants that are hard to get into.
It really is a great option for those that want the flexibility of choosing table service or quick service, but isn’t as expensive as the Deluxe Dining plan. The Deluxe Dining Plan also is waaayyy to much food in our opinion.
The new dining plan can be purchased for $94.61 (per night) for adults (ages 10 and up) and $35.01 (per night) for children (ages 3-9) including tax. It is priced between the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.
