Try dining at on-site Disney resorts
Don’t forget about the resorts for Dining Options, even if you aren’t a guest there. Some are just a short boat ride (Hoop-De-Doo, Trail’s End, Whispering Canyon) or short monorail ride away (Chef Mickey’s). These restaurants may not be as full as the ones in the parks and if they are character meals, you can usually get more interaction from the characters. A great character meal is Goofy’s Breakfast at Cape May Resort. Characters will usually sit at your table and interact with the kids.
Save on snacks and drinks
You are allowed to take food and drinks into the parks, so feel free to bring along a few snacks and bottled water for your day.
Purchase a dining plan to save money
The Dining Plan is a great value. You have a wide variety of choices to please any palate, with more than 200 restaurants available.
There are table-service restaurants, where you are served your meal. These can include character dining and dinner shows. Dinner shows will account for two meals instead of one.
Quick-service is your fast food meal and snacks are available, such as popcorn, ice cream, drinks and more.
There are three different dining packages available:
- Two Quick-service meals and two snacks per night
- One table-service, one quick-service and one snack per night or
- The Deluxe Dining Packing, which includes any three meals and two snacks per night of your stay.
You may use your meal allotments any way you like. If you would like to use two quick-service meals in one day, you can, even if you go over your daily allotment. Your allotment is for your entire stay.
